Working at the HZI
The Helmholtz Centre for Infection Research set up its "International Office" in March, 2005. Here, foreign staff members and guests get assistance acclimatizing themselves to their new surroundings. They are helped with the bureaucratic hurdles that accompany any move to a foreign country. Whether visa formalities, residency or work permits, health insurance or finding accommodations, the International Office gives foreign colleagues all the help they need to cope with the everyday problems.
