Visa

If you would like to apply for a visa according to §18d of the German Residence Act, it is necessary that you conclude a hosting agreement with the receiving research institution - in this case Martin Luther University (MLU). This applies regardless of whether you will be employed at MLU with a work contract, receive a scholarship, or finance your research project yourself. Please note that the conclusion of a hosting agreement may take at least 14 days. It is therefore advisable to take care of it early. Depending on the funding, the modalities of how you obtain a hosting agreement vary and are briefly explained below.

a) Hosting agreement with employment contract

If you are to receive an employment contract at MLU, the conclusion of the admission agreement falls under the responsibility of Department 3 - Human Resources. Please make sure that the hosting agreement is signed and stamped by the University of Halle, because some German embassies abroad only accept the agreement with a stamp.

b) Admission agreement with scholarship or self-financing

If you receive a scholarship or self-finance your research project, the International Office is responsible for concluding the Hosting Agreement. In this case, ask your supervisor to send the following documents to the International Office at :

  • Completed Hosting Agreement Form with the information of the supervisor, the researcher's data, the topic of the research project and the duration of the project.
  • Proof of funding (scholarship holders: Scholarship contract, in case of self-financing: bank statements)
  • Copies of all university degrees obtained abroad, e.g. Bachelor's degree, Master's degree, diploma. Please submit a copy in the original language and a certified translation in German or English (Documents in German or English do not require a translation).
  • Copies of your academic achievements in the original language and a certified translation in German or English.

In case of self-funding, please submit additionally:

  • Signed confirmation of own funds (see template below)

After reviewing the documents and if the requirements are met, you will receive the signed hosting agreement.
