Information about social security contributions and taxes

Social security contributions

For visiting scientists the grant is free of contributions to the social security system in Germany. As HITS is not responsible, the visiting scientist himself/herself has to obtain health insurance, preferably in advance.

There is a good offer by MLP for foreign students which you can apply for from abroad: Health insurance. If you are interested please contact Mr. Ritter (E-Mail: steffen.ritter@mlp.de; phone: 0171-3854781).

For general information, please contact




Whether taxes have to be paid in Gemany has to be checked individually.
