Zambians or non-EU nationals need a visa in order to enter Germany.
The type of visa you require depends on how long you plan to stay. Are you planning a short visit to Germany, e.g. for a holiday? Or would you like to stay longer, e.g. to attend university?
Please choose how long you are planning to stay. 

Short stay (maximum of 90 days, e.g. for a holiday or business trip)

Long stay (more than 90 days, e.g. to attend university, work or join a family member in Germany)


Please note:

When applying for visa, you can provide evidence that you are able to meet your living costs by opening a blocked bank account. You have free choice of providers. Information on providers that offer this service worldwide is available on the website of the Federal Foreign Office under the following link:
