“Don’t make a change too complicated, just begin.”
Moving to a different country is exciting and potentially stressful. To help you and your family settle in, we are more than happy to support you with:
- Visa and resident permits
- Registration Office
- Health & private liability Insurances
- Bank Account
- Housing / Guesthouse
- Dual Career Service
- German Language courses
In case you would like us to assist you, please get in touch with the International Office directly. Please make sure to contact us as soon as possible as some of the bureaucratic processes will take quite some time. We might even take on correspondance with the local authoritiess and appointments for you - provided that your personal appearance is not required. Our aim is to make your start at the Max-Planck-Institute as smooth as possible, by at the same time getting you fit for tackling bureaucratic processes yourself.
A first overview of the most important information is given in the guide Living and Working in Germany from the Max-Planck-Society. Moreover, the Pre-Arrival-Checklist might help you with your preparations.
Please do not hesitate to contact the International Office concerning every question which might come up prior to your arrival, during your time in Germany or prior to leaving Germany again. We are looking forward to welcome you to Frankfurt soon!
