Declaration of commitment

German: Verpflichtungserklärung

People from non-EU states who want to apply for a visa to come to Germany may be invited by persons living in Germany if the latter submit a Verpflichtungserklärung, or “declaration of commitment”, to a foreign nationals' registration authority in Germany. This declaration obliges the inviter to guarantee the financial support of the visa applicant during his or her stay in Germany. In some German cities, such as Offenbach am Main and Wiesbaden, the declaration can also be submitted via online application.
