Keep German Embassy busy

As Trinidadians and Tobagonians prepare for the “Futball-Welt-meisterschaft,” the Football World Cup in Germany in June, the German Embassy has been pretty active since the Soca Warriors qualified for the finals last November.

With just three weeks to the opening ceremony scheduled for June 7, activities at the embassy have heightened and there has been a steady trek of nationals seeking visas for Germany so they can be in the European country to support the Soca Warriors, and as well, be part of a historical occasion.

Third secretary at the embassy, Patrick Dzierzon stated this period has been the busiest for the embassy ever since it set-up base in Trinidad in 1963.

“The embassy has issued 1,811 visas so far in 2006, out of those were 1,250 visas for the World Cup. In the same period in 2005, the embassy had issued only 490 visas,” said Dzierzon adding that the hectic period began in the last few weeks with more than a hundred applications being processed every day. Dzierzon also said the embassy, on Marli Street, Port-of-Spain expects these numbers to continue to be high until the kick-off to the tournament and, so far, no application for a visa for the World Cup has been refused.

“The embassy is excited about Trinidad and Tobago having qualified for the World Cup in Germany and the huge interest that Germany has gained in this country through this event. “A time to make friends,” the official motto of this World Cup should be taken literally. “ The Germans are looking forward to welcoming friends from all over the world and we hope that the Soca Warriors and their supporters will contribute hugely to this colourful festival on and off the pitch,” he said.


Warriors head to second round — poll
(Newsday)


Tuesday, May 16 2006

Most people voting in Newsday’s online poll are confident that the Trinidad and Tobago Soca Warriors will advance to the second round of the FIFA World Cup finals which start on June 9.

The question on the Newsday website, www.newsday.co.tt, asked people to vote on the matter. Three hundred and thirty five respondents said the team will advance, while 262 persons said, “No.”

The Soca Warriors left on Saturday for London after a week of farewell activities in TT. They will stay at camps in Manchester and Austria before going on to Germany.

The Warriors are in Group B with England, Sweden and Paraguay. Their first match will be on June 10 against Sweden.

Can anybody give me an itemized list of what is needed for the German Enmbassy in NY or other states?

I know about the insurance, and world cup tickets but what about flight information, hotel accomodation, proof of employment etc. ?

JDB.  Check the German Consulate website for details.  You needed, booked flights, accomodation for the entire peiod of your stay, the insurance letter & a job letter.  I did not show my WC tickets and was not asked to, I don't believe that is a requirement and your US$43 in cash.

JDB...get your friends to email you or fax you a letter stating that you are invited to stay with them. You must include your dates of stay and an address and phone number for your host. if you have an email address for your friend, give that too. you must have that proof if you do not have a hotel reservation.
