Student collection lists Class trip, secure stay

Entry / transit - Schengen countries
Students from third countries (non-EU countries) who have a residence permit in Germany (settlement permit or residence permit) do not need a visa for the Schengen states. This applies to both transit and stays of up to three months. The prerequisite is that they have a valid national passport from their country of origin and a German residence permit.

Entry / transit through EU member states, but not Schengen states
For entry into and transit to an EU member state that is not a Schengen state, the student collection list was developed for class trips of general schools and vocational schools. Students from third countries no longer need a visa for entry / transit if they are entered on such a list. If the student collection list is provided with passport photos, it even replaces the passport.

  • School name and address
  • Surnames and first names of all travelers (including the accompanying teachers)
  • In addition, the surname, first name, date of birth, place of birth, nationality and, if possible, legal residence status of those foreign students who come from third countries
  • Passport photos of these students
  • Indication of the travel destination and the duration of the trip


  • Pupils from a general education school or vocational school from third countries with a settlement permit or residence permit (secure residence)
  • Entry or transit to an EU member state that is not a Schengen state


Responsibility depends on the location of the school, not on the place of residence of the students.
