🇩🇪 Germany Introduces Dedicated Visa For Esports

Sharing This Story

Germany has introduced a dedicated visa that accommodates esports athletes from outside of the European Union.

At the time, prospective requirements for successful applicants also involved them competing in a national or international league and being employed by an esports team that’s registered in Germany.

Hans Jagnow, President of the German Esports Federation commented on the development:

“The German esports visa will be a big advantage for events hosted in Germany”.

We are the first country to establish a dedicated visa category for esports.

There are more international esports events expected to take place in Germany.

“This development also may serve as a model for other nations. The visa requirements for esports professionals should be harmonized internationally in order to allow easy access to tournaments and leagues for esports athletes all over the world.”

This is a great development for both Germany and the esports industry, making it much easier to compete and live inside the country for those that would have had a much harder time staying for longer than 90 days previously.
