I read through your earlier posts re: this; my case appears to be a bit different in the sense that I haven't got my H1 stamped even once. Just wanted to know what your recent experiences have been re: this issue.
My wife and I are going to India via Frankfurt and wonder if we'll need to get a transit visa during our onward journey. (While coming back, we hope to have our H visas stamped.)
I'm employed on H1 and my wife is on H4; neither of us have our visas stamped on our passports yet. (We progressed through F1/F2 visas, to OPT (myself), to H1/H4 within the last 2 years. Our F visas were stamped on the passports, obviously.)
According to the German Consulate's website , citizens of India travelling via Frankfurt are exempt from obtaining a transit visa if they have maintained a legal stay in the USA, and are returning to India.
Have any of you invoked this and NOT obtained a transit visa, while in Frankfurt? Thanks for sharing.
To be safe, does Germany issue Transit visas at the airport, on arrival?
