Almanya Transit Vize

Merhaba Berlin aktarmalı Newyork uçuşum var. Seyahatim mart sonunda. Havayolu şirketimle görüşüp vize gerekip gerekmediğini sordum fakat net bir yanıt alamadım. 5 saatlik bekleme sürem var Berlin’de. Almanya transit vize almam gerekiyor mu? Almam gerekirse seyahatime de çok az bir süre kaldı, vize başvurum seyahatime yetişir mi acaba?
