The German Foreign Ministry has announced that foreign nationals with expired Schengen visas must leave Germany by Sept. 30 because more travel options have become available.
In April and again in June, German authorities announced they would honor expired Schengen visas because many foreign nationals were unable to leave the country at the time because of COVID-19 travel restrictions.
The ministry recently announced that it would not provide another extension because restrictions have eased and countries are not barring their own nationals from returning home.
Foreign nationals with expired Schengen visas must make plans to either depart Germany by Sept. 30 or obtain another legal basis to remain in the country.
