Willkommen im Welcome Center der Charité – Universitätsmedizin Berlin
Hier finden internationale mobile Wissenschaftler und Wissenschaftlerinnen sowie Gastgeberinstitute notwendige Informationen rund um den Forschungsaufenthalt an der Charité. Wissenschaftspersonal aus dem Ausland erfährt alles über Visabestimmungen bis hin zu Familienangelegenheiten und mehr.
ATTENTION: We have started our visa service for 2022 but please note:
Currently we can´t guarantee a quick processing so please contact us well in advance (min. 4 weeks in advance).
Your residence permit or visa expires in a few days? Then we will need to ask you to book an appointment on your own using the following link:
Link with the general information: https://www.berlin.de/einwanderung/en/services/appointments/#appointment
Link to book an appointment directly: https://otv.verwalt-berlin.de/ams/TerminBuchen?lang=en
If, when booking your appointment, your residence title will remain valid in Germany, at least until the day of the appointment you scheduled online.
This also applies to all conditions stipulated on your residence title, including the regulations pertaining to gainful employment. This means: As long as you fingerprint before your residence permit/visa expires, you can sign or stay in your contract because they give you a letter which works as a temporarily visa "Fiktionsbescheinigung" and allows you to work. Please forward this letter to personnel.
TRAVELLING ABROAD is only possible within the validity of your last residence title! If you have plans to travel you should ask for a temporarily visa for three months providing flight or train tickets. With a temporarily visa “Fiktionsbescheinigung” you are able to travel.
Please be aware that this will only apply, if you attend the booked appointment!
OFFICE HOURS: Personal appearance at office hours has been cancelled until further notice. We are only available by email and telephone.
