There are at least 10 good reasons why businesses should invest in Germany. For a start, Germany leads the world as an industrialised nation; it has a big market; it’s centrally located in Europe, even though it doesn’t have any of its own seaports.

German Tourist Visa Information
If you intend to visit Germany as a tourist the requirements to visit, including the length of time you are allowed to stay, will depend on your country of origin. Some citizens of countries aren’t required to get any visa to enter German for up to 90 days while those who are citizens of the E.U. or Schengen member countries don’t require any permission to enter Germany and there is no time limit on their stay.
Over recent decades Germany has become a melting pot of different cultures. Some migration took place after World War 2 when migrants were needed to supply their skills to industry, while other migration has occurred as the European Union has grown. This has led to the less well-off members migrating to Germany and other affluent European Union countries to seek a better life.
German citizenship is applied through jus sanguinis, or citizenship by descent. This is acquired when someone is born to a German parent anywhere in the world. All German citizens have the right to freedom of movement in countries that are members of the European Union as this is a right assigned to citizens of countries who are part of the EU / Schengen. Dual citizenship is not required to live and work as a German in an EU country.
