Getting Started Workshop

Help!  What do I take care of first?

Work permit, job offer, bank account, apartment, taxes and health insurance – where, when and how do I get these things?

Our Getting Started workshop is for EU and non-EU citizens alike.  You’ll learn how to:

•       Register your address as a resident of Germany
•       Get health insurance
•       Open a bank account
•       Get a tax number and pay taxes
•       Find an apartment or room
•       Get a mobile phone/internet
•       Make an appointment for a work or student permit if needed

You’ll come away with a To Do checklist organized in sequence, useful phone numbers and addresses, and German terms for the offices, officials and documents you’ll need to deal with – all for just 25 Euros.

UPDATE: Currently, no live Getting Started Workshop sessions are planned for 2018. You are still able to stream our online seminar at any time.

It is possible to organize a Getting Started in Berlin workshop as a private seminar for your organization, however. If you are interested, please email us at coaching (at) .


If you need more individualized help, contact us to book individual coaching on our ‘Getting Started’ topics – face-to-face in our office or via Skype.

We’re looking forward to hearing from you!
