Visa 601 and 651


This two visas seem the same to me, except that few less countries qualify for the 601.

Which one would you recommend?

The main difference (apart from the differing countries) is whether you have a criminal conviction or not. If you do not have a criminal conviction and have a German passport then the best visa for you is 651 as it is free.
