Please note that ID-cards issued by banks, the post or other Danish institutions as well as Danish driving licenses are not valid for entry to Germany.
Third-country nationals with a national residence permit issued by a Schengen country may, for the duration of its validity, travel for up to 90 days per 180-day period to any other Schengen country. This also applies to holders of a national visa (category “D” visa) issued by a Schengen Country.

Formal Obligation by Private Individuals (Letter of Guarantee, “Verpflichtungserklärung”): By submitting a formal obligation you agree to pay all costs for the livelihood of your visitor. This means you have to reimburse any payments received from public funds if your visitor claims/is in need of public means (e.g. housing, medical care or need of long-term care). Therefore you should make sure that your visitor has a valid travel-health-insurance before he or she enters Germany. You also agree to covering unconditionally all costs if your visitor is sent back to his or her home country.
