The EU residence permit for EU citizens and nationals of EEA countries (Iceland, Liechtenstein, Norway and Switzerland) has been abolished. These persons are only required to register with the local authorities and obtain a certificate of free movement (Freizügigkeitsbescheinigung).
Citizens from all other countries require a residence permit which is issued by the foreigners’ registration office (Ausländerbehörde). Within 3 months after arrival your study visa must be converted into a residence permit. The residence permit is generally issued for a period of one or two years depending on the application. It can be extended on the condition that the holder applies for extension prior to the expiry of the respective period of validity.
Dahlem Research School has made special arrangements with the foreigners’ registration office. Your documents will be processed and handed over to the foreigners’ registration office by the International Office of Freie Universität Berlin. If you have all the necessary documents ready, please contact Mrs. Wilma Runge, Kaiserswerther Str. 16-18, 14195 Berlin, Phone: 030 / 838 73408, Email: Wilma.Runge@fu-berlin.de. You will be notified when your residence permit is ready to be picked up.
