You and any family members travelling with you will need adequate health insurance for the whole of your stay as a visiting researcher.

The health insurance must cover medical treatment for acute illness and accidents in Germany and return travel to your home country for medical reasons. Potential treatments and costs arising from pre-existing conditions in Germany are not included in health insurance taken out here.
