Furnished apartments in a central location are very much sought after on the Bonn accommodation market, so we advise you to begin looking in good time before you arrive. The following list of abbreviations may be useful when looking at adverts for accommodation.

Health insurance

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

Your research stay in Bonn at our institute is based on our fellowship or financed privately, so you are not subject to statutory social insurance. Nevertheless, in any case you are required to have sufficient health insurance coverage - preferably - with a full assumption of costs for any medical assistance.

Banking and financial services

Generally, it is advisable to open a bank account for your stay in Germany. Alternatively, a bank account in your own EU country using the euro can be used.

If you have further queries, contact Mrs. Svenja Beljaars in Administration.
