German Airport Transit Visa "required" expect...
1. You are US Citizen
2. You are Green Card Holder
3. You have been issued a H1 for more than 3 years (or H1 issued in the year 2001 or before) with multiple entry.

In all other cases, for US residents of Indian Nationality require a Transit Visa.

This is the information I got after speaking to German Consulate at SFO.

I need to take one coz my H1 Visa issue date is 11 Feb 2003.

Transit Visa might be a good Idea, since Frankfurt might not be aware of rules
      I am not really sure. I sent an email to the German consulate in the US(Transit Visa). They said I needed a Visa. My guess is they are not clear as to the combinations of H1, EAD, AP. Please see Below email I sent and reply I received

  Dear Sir,
              I am an Indian Citizen. I work in the United States for a Company for whom I have a EAD (Employment Authorization Document US)
and Advance Parole (that allows me to travel outside the US) . I dont have a US visa on my passport, but the above documents make me eligible to work in the US.
I will be making a trip to India from US and will be flying by Lufthansa.
There will be a transit time of 30-45 minutes in Frankfurt airport in Germany.
Please suggest if I need to get a Transit Visa for this period in Germany in the airport(30-45 minutes).
Please feel free to email me or contact me.
Appreciate you support

Transit visa required?
I am traveling to India from US via Frankfurt (Lufthansa). I have my H1 visa renewed (next 3 years). I need to get it stamped in my passport in India. I have all the supporting documentation (I-797 etc). Do I still need a transit visa during my stopover at Frankfurt on my way to India?

no need for transit visa in frankfurt
I travelled and returned to US Feb 16th via Frankfurt in Lufthansa on an expired visa and advance parole. I did not take transit visa and u don't need one. U just need to show ur advance parole document and there is no problem. So please don't take a transit visa.
