Hi guys,

I am in a similar situation, I will be travelling on Lufthansa to Mumbai via Frankfurt. My F-1 visa has expired and I will be getting it stamped in Mumbai. However I do have a valid I-20. Will I need a transit visa for Frankfurt?? 

Please do let me know


Yes you will need it. Else they wouldnt allow you inside their plane.
