Planning a Trip to Germany for the UEFA 2024

There is only one month left until the start of Euro 2024. It is very difficult to book hotels in one of the cities in Germany where the matches will be held as part of the championship, but still possible.

And don’t forget to obtain a Schengen visa, without which your trip to Europe will not take place. When applying to The Visa Services specialists, the visa processing time will take from two weeks, so we recommend not delaying and applying for a visa to Germany right now.

For those who, for some reason, postpone resolving visa issues until the last moment, an urgent visa service to Germany is available at The Visa Services, thanks to which you can get a stamp in your passport in just 2–3 days from the moment of application. However, due to the high number of people wanting to travel from Dubai to Europe in the summer period and the increased demand for available slots, we recommend not delaying and entrusting us with the preparation of documents right now!


What are my chances of getting a visa if I apply now?

When applying through The Visa Services company, your chances of obtaining a Schengen visa and traveling to UEFA 2024 are still quite high. Our specialists’ experience allows us to process a visa within two weeks, and in urgent cases – within 2–3 days. However, the key point here is the availability of open slots. Summer is the busiest time for trips to Europe from Dubai, so we still recommend planning your document submission in advance to increase your chances of a favorable outcome

How and where can I purchase tickets for the UEFA 2024 matches?

Euro 2024 is one of the most popular sport events in the world, so tickets for it are quickly sold out, and it is currently almost impossible to purchase them. The availability of seats for individual matches is constantly updated on the official UEFA ticket portal, so it is necessary to carefully monitor the information in order not to miss your chance to attend a game
