First steps after arriving in Osnabrück

A lot of important formalities have to be taken care of after your arrival in Osnabrück.
You must register with the authorities and, if necessary, apply for a residence permit (Aufenthaltserlaubnis).
In addition, you will require health and accident insurance that is valid in Germany.
In order to make payment issues easier, you should open a bank account.
You will also have to arrange a number of matters at the University: you will probably need an e-mail address and access to the library.

The International Office staff will be glad to assist you.
