International postdocs and visitors
First point of contact: M&B!
Queries about Visa, residence permits, registration, etc.: Please contact our central office first. Hopefully, we will be able to help you, or we will direct you to the Welcome Center:
Humboldt-Universität International Scholar Services / Welcome Centre
To facilitate its international scientists' entry into the professional environment in Germany and to ensure the university becomes an even more attractive place to work, HU has opened a service centre for international researchers and doctoral students.
International Scholar Services would like to ensure that your time at Humboldt-Universität and in Berlin gets off to a good start. We help you take care of all the important non-academic affairs that you will face before your arrival and in the first few weeks after you have arrived – from applying for a visa to obtaining health insurance or opening a bank account. We support during your stay and also advise you on what you need to do before you leave Berlin.
The International Scholar Services is centrally located in the main university building, where two team members will offer their support and advice.
