What you have to pay attention to when traveling abroad and the entry regulations
A business trip abroad, outside the EU, is more complicated. The passport is essential and a visa only gives limited access to different regions of the world. A good organization prepares you in the best possible way for a business trip abroad.
With our tips you are on the safe side.

Business trips abroad - country-specific entry regulations
You should pay attention to the following points:
- Your Visa: You must apply for the visa at the responsible diplomatic mission abroad before you start your business trip abroad, d. H. at the respective embassy or consulate general. Allow enough time for this, as applying for the visa can take some time. Some countries simplify the process through online measures or electronic authorization, such as ESTA for entry into the USA, eVisitor for Australia or eTA for Canada. It is best to inquire at the Federal Foreign Office whether you need a visa for your business trip abroad.
- Your passport: A valid passport is necessary for a non-European business trip abroad - but in many cases it is by no means sufficient. Often there is a minimum duration that the passport has to be valid, for example six months.
- Your driving license: If you want to drive a car abroad during your business trip, you should apply for an international driver's license. Normally, submitting a biometric picture to the responsible driver's license office is sufficient for the application. You can usually find information about this on your city's Citizens Service website. Further information can be found on the website of the Federal Foreign Office.
Business trips abroad - how to stay calm even in emergencies
Before you start your business trip abroad, please clarify whether your protection is sufficient in the event of illness as well as in the event of an accident. Care in the event of illness and transport back to your home country should be guaranteed in any case. Some providers recommend an emergency hotline so that you can receive telephone support in the event of illness.
