Apply for Visa
If you want to live and work in Germany, you may have to apply for a residence permit, depending on which citizenship you have. There are different visa options based on the reason you come to Germany. For example, there is the EU-Blue Card for highly qualified applicants with a valid and recognised degree, but also other kinds of ‘work visa’ based on an actual job offer or work contract. There are also visas for students, interns, married partners, freelancers, au-pairs, recent university graduates, etc. Applying for a visa could be a tricky process that’s why good preparation is highly recommended. So why not get help with it? Here’s a list of services that help you with your application.
Deregister … before you leave Germany!
If you leave Germany and move to another country then you must deregister (Abmeldung). Otherwise you may still be liable for contracts you have signed in Germany, or for paying tax here. Deregistering is an easy process. You can even do it after you have already left Germany. On our website you can simply fill out the deregistration form (Abmeldeformular) and the landlord confirmation (Wohnungsgeberbestätigung) in English. We will automatically translate them into German. You then send them to the German registration office (Bürgeramt). Done.
