Non-EU citizens need a visa to travel to Germany. The type of visa depends on the duration of the stay. If you plan to stay in Germany for a short period of time (less than 90 days) e.g. in order to visit family members or for a Business trip, you will need a Schengen Visa. If you plan a longer stay in Germany (over 90 days) e.g. for study purposes or family reunion, your will need a long-stay Visa.
