Semester abroad and Corona?!

What do we advise?

  • Basically: Health is the most important thing!
  • inform about the current situation in the host country (German Foreign Office, Re-open EUTravel Restrictions, RKI, Covid-19 Dashboard, website of the host university, ...)
  • when travelling to risk areas, registration in the crisis prevention list "Elephant" of the German Foreign Office
  • use the app „Sicher Reisen“ of the Federal Foreign Office
  • Medical advice and testing of sufficient vaccination protection (Health Office/Tropical Institute)
  • conclusion of an international health insurance, liability and accident insurance as well as repatriation insurance (NO insurance cover via HTW Dresden abroad!)
  • adhere to the hygiene regulations of the host country and follow the rules 
  • if necessary, virtual start of a mobility and later physical continuation
  • possible postponement of the stay abroad
  • wait as long as possible until you book travel tickets, rent an apartment in the host country or similar (conclusion of travel cancellation insurance)
  • Stay abroad is at your own responsibility!
