Entry requirements for Germany

Nationals of the EU or EEA can travel to Germany without restrictions with a national identity card or a valid passport. Residence permits are also made easy, as EU-EEA nationals have a work permit all over Europe and do not require a visa. For citizens of over a hundred Schengen countries, only a valid passport is required to enter Germany for a stay up to 90 days.
