Prior to Arrival

The following check list should help you with your travel preparations before you leave home:

  • Decide when you are going to start work and discuss the date with your (host) institute well in advance
  • Put together the most important documents
  • Apply for your visa (and those of any members of your family accompanying you)
  • Find out about accommodation in your new place of residence
  • Arrange health insurance cover (for yourself, your marital partner and children)
  • If necessary, enquire about local childcare/schools well in advance
