The International Scholar Services (ISS) will support researchers and PhD candidates from abroad and help them settle in to university and city life.

 

+++ ISS are closed as of 16 March 2020 +++

 

Dear international scholars,

We hereby inform you that ISS are closed due to the pandemic spread of the coronavirus. This means that we can only give advice by e-mail at the moment. We do our very best to answer your questions as soon as possible. We hope you understand that due to the current situation there might be delays.

Please note that the application for or extension of your residence permit through ISS is currently NOT possible.

 

Immigration Office Update

While the Immigration Office continues to remain closed for the public they introduced an online registration for certain groups of people whose visa/residence permits expire soon or have expired already.
Please note that this online registration does not serve to apply for or extend your residence permit. Still, it confirms your legal stay until the Immigration Office is operating as usual again and can process the actual application properly.

Please have a look at the Immigration Office’s official website to register online if your visa/residence permit has expired recently or is going to expire soon.

In any case, we kindly urge you to visit their website for more details and other concerns:
