Arrival and orientation
Upon arriving in Darmstadt you will need to complete a number of interconnected bureaucratic processes. These processes enable you to apply for a residence permit and conduct research. Short term researchers conducting research with an entry visa may also find the information on opening a bank account, choosing health insurance and purchasing a mobile telephone package helpful. The Welcome Centre will invite you to an appointment to discuss the relevant topics with you and support you in accomplishing these tasks once you are in Darmstadt.
