However, her lack of information on the necessary visa formalities for travelling within the EU ended in turmoil while simply hoping to return to her two-year old daughter for Christmas in the Ukraine. </p> <p>"Moving to a new place is always quite challenging, especially when you move to another country. Besides such basic things as to get used to a new way of life in a new society you face lots of paper formalities which complicate your life greatly, especially at the beginning and without knowing a language. That is why it is extremely helpful for a foreigner to receive some assistance and professional advice, which we have found in the EURAXESS Services Centre. It is very difficult to overestimate the support we received. I would like to thank one more time the EURAXESS team for giving me a helping hand and being there for me when the times were so difficult."</p> <p>Who to contact 6National Service Centres:</p> <p>EURAXESS Service Local Contact Point </p> <p>A total of 56 000 Researchers were assisted by theEURAXESS Services Centres in 2009, finding solutionsfor over 108 000 problems and questions like for e.g. onvisa and entry conditions, funding opportunities, schools,accommodation, legal problems, social security...How can we help you?4Thank you!</p>
