Settle in Germany - the easy way

No matter what your reasons are for moving to Germany, knowing the ins and outs of getting set up properly right from the start can save you from a lot of bureaucratic hassle and headaches further down the road.  

In order to make the process of relocating and getting on your feet simple, we've created our comprehensive online video seminar "Getting Started and Finding a Flat in Germany" - to help take the guesswork out of the required steps and avoid common pitfalls along the way.

The German requirements can seem very daunting, as there are numerous documents required and offices to visit, but Expath simplifies the process by providing detailed instructions for how to complete the steps and in what order.

  • My first days in Berlin were a little bit terrifying (even though I had lived in another German city already), so the workshop was definitely a great way to start getting things done. It's only been 4 days since the workshop and most of my legal obligations have been accomplished already. I can now say I feel confident to start my life in Berlin. Thank you!!!!!
