Removal expenses are not paid by CERN. However, under certain conditions, as a student, you might be able to benefit from a duty free custom procedure for the import of your belongings to Switzerland or France. For more information, please contact the Installation Service at Installation.Service@cern.ch . Further information is also available here.
As a student, if you are living more than 70 km away from Geneva (distance by airplane in a straight line) at the time of the committee and you are not already registered at CERN, you will receive a travel allowance on a flat rate basis, calculated on your place of residence only (provided that you take up residence within a radius of 50 km from Geneva). The reimbursement will be processed on arrival once the permanent residence is communicated and your Swiss bank account opens. No proof of transport is required.
If you are entitled to travel reimbursement, CERN will reimburse it upon arrival on a flat rate basis from your place of residence at the time of the selection committee. The reimbursement will be processed by your departmental secretariat, once you open your Swiss bank account.
