🌍 Know before you go

Take the time to check you have all the relevant valid documents for travelling to Germany.

Coming from within the EU / Schengen Area

You can travel to Germany using your national ID card or passport. It’s also good to carry ID on you at all times, as you may need it to check in to your accommodation, or in the event of requiring assistance with your match ticket at the stadium.

Entering from outside of these areas (from the UK, for example)

You will need your passport and must go through border control. Your passport must meet both Schengen Area entry requirements:

✅Valid for at least 3 months after the date you intend to leave the EU
✅ Issued within the last 10 years

Some fans may also require a visa to gain entry into Germany, for example supporters from Türkiye. Visit Germany’s Federal Foreign Office website to check the complete list and apply for a visa.

Schengen visa for ticketholders from Turkey

If you’re a Turkish national, you will require a valid Schengen visa to travel to your UEFA EURO 2024 match in Germany this summer. If you don’t possess a valid Schengen visa, apply as soon as you can so your visa gets approved in time!

More info on the visa application procedure and required documents can be found here.
