Welcome Office

Our service for guests and new employees

At the Welcome Office, we offer consultation and support on various issues. We strive to provide our international employees and guests with a good start at the Hereon, both in Geesthacht and the rest of Germany.

We assist with formalities such as visa application, visa renewal, matters related to employment law, etc. We are also ready to help with everyday issues such as living and working in Germany and Geesthacht.
