Is the electronic residence permit card (written completely in German and without any specific mention of Schengen visa) considered as a valid visa?

    Doesn't your card say "residence permit" in English on the front in the bottom right corner? Also, why are you asking whether it is "considered as a valid visa?" Are you referring to a specific list of requirements? If so, which one? (You must satisfy the document requirements both of your cruise operator and of the countries you wish to visit, after all.)

  • Thankyou for your comment. My question stemmed from the fact that unlike in the paper version of the visa, it isn't mentioned anywhere that I have a Schengen Visa on the electronic permit. For anyone interested, my electronic permit was enough for the trip. Aug 2, 2019 at 13:02

For anyone interested, my electronic residence permit was enough for this trip (considering I was staying at the first port of entry for a period of less than 24 hours).
