Preparation at home

Before coming to Germany you should prepare carefully, especially if you are not a citizen of the European Union. It is advisable to start obtaining some of the documents etc. as soon as you have decided to come to Greifswald.

If you are not an EU citizen then special attention should be given to obtain the correct documents for a visa. Everyone will need to obtain a residence permit to live in Greifswald and certain documents are required for that. It is generally much easier to obtain these documents while you are in your home county rather than after you arrive in Greifswald.

Please note that documents which are not completed correctly will delay your application for a visa.

You will find checklists in the margin.
