Visas

Visas

  • Switzerland, having signed the Schengen Agreement had to adapt their rules to the Schengen rules.

  • Please visit the url: http://hoststates.web.cern.ch/hoststates/en/Welcome.htmlto find important information for your arrival and stay in the Geneva area and for the stay of your family while you are a member of the CERN personnel.

  • For matters concerning Visas, the following link contains a rather complete information: http://hoststates.web.cern.ch/hoststates/en/VisasAndResidence/Welcome.html

  • See also note published in CERN Bulletin issue 38-39/2010 of 20 September 2010, url: http://cdsweb.cern.ch/journal/CERNBulletin/2010/38/Official%20News/1291960?ln=enIt instructs on how visas for France and/or Switzerland can be obtained for current and future members of the CERN personnel.

New account management system

New Account Management System

  • New Account Management System may have a undesirable impact in the automatic delivery of e-mails from the UO. Remember to UO has an automatic system to warn Users on a variety of contract issues like early warning on expiration of contract, expiration of residence permits and others.

  • If a new User ignores the content of the Flyer in the url: https://account.cern.ch/account/Help/Contents/Files/NewComerFlyer.pdf and decides to keep his/her home institute e-mail account without taking any action, they will not receive any official communication from CERN services.

  • Legal service and IT security agreed to our proposal of giving a two months grace period to accounts assigned to expired contracts of Users. Michael and I convinced them that the 1 month issue should be discussed in ACCU.

Parking regulations on the cern sites

Parking regulations on the CERN sites

Now that the Xmas period is close this is a reminder of the Parking regulations at CERN

  • Vehicles can not be left on a CERN parking for longer that 5 consecutive working days

  • Users could benefit of longer parking periods in a special car parking near B588. They must apply to the Reception and Access Control Service completing a “Request for a long-term parking permit” form.

  • Parking places in crowded areas must not be occupied by abandoned vehicles.

GS Department has published a note with details in the CERN Bulletin issue 42-43/2010 of 18 October 2010. It can be found in the following url:

http://cdsweb.cern.ch/journal/CERNBulletin/2010/42/General Information/1300234?ln=en

The following is a short summary of the note

Forgive us

Forgive us

  • You all have passed by the UO and know that the personnel is young, kind and efficient.

  • However the work load is big and the resources are low. We handle more than 5000 long term contract renewals/year (25 renewals/Day), some 2000 short-term contracts/year (10 contracts/day), checking circumstances and legality of contract, and many other things like insurance and adequacy of salary or subsistence in the Geneva area.

  • Currently only 4 staff and some learning TL are handling registration, verification of data, contract and cards delivery.

  • It is clear that human resources are low and insufficient for all the tasks assigned to the UO.

  • I seek for your help to find a solution to this lack of resources
