can i get a one day schengen visa for Germany?

I'll be traveling from the U.S. back to India in August, I was planing to go out in Munich during my layover period of 22 hours between flights. Could I get a Schengen visa for such a short duration? Could I apply the visa from the U.S?
Any help would be great.


  • You need a Schengen visa to go out of the
    airport. As you are in the US you can apply for the Schengen visa at the Germany Embassy in the US

    As an Indian citizen you require a transit visa from Germany to stay in the airport for a lengthy stop over
  • So, I could just do this all online?
  • No, you need to apply for your visa in person at the nearest german embassy or consulate.
  • Thank you for all the help :)
