Erasmus travels (teaching and staff mobility only)
If you are invited to travel with Erasmus, please make sure to take out health insurance (Reisekrankenversicherung) in advance.
In addition, with Erasmus travels, you should only book your travel after the travel has been approved by the department. If you book after approval, Erasmus may be able to take over the cancellation costs. If you have booked the trip before approval and it cannot take place or will be cancelled, you will not receive any reimbursement.
Also note that Erasmus is liable to taxes: if you are a salaried fellow, the travel has to be filed in your income tax.
