Airport Transit Visa for Frankfurt?

Recommended Posts

Hello All,

I am traveling to New Delhi in December for vacation and to renew my H1B Visa (Stamp) via Frankfurt Airport (from USA).  My current Visa stamp expired in October 2015, I have approved I-797 & I-94 till December 2018.  My wife recently changed status to H4 (EAD) from F1. 

Do we need to have a Airport transit visa to travel from Frankfurt Airport? It is approximately 4 hours halt at Frankfurt Airport before I board my next flight to New Delhi (direct). 

Last I traveled via Frankfurt was in 2010 and there was no such requirement then. Anyone else traveled recently via Frankfurt in similar visa situation?  

Thanks in advance.

Is anyone else in same situation?
