We help people from all over the world who are new in Germany and overwhelmed, confused or concerned about doing things right when they first get to Germany, especially when they don’t speak the language. The legalities and procedures, requirements and duties in Germany may differ dramatically from those in your home country, and are sometimes not very transparent.At Expath, we have years of experience dealing with the paperwork and bureaucracy involved with getting settled in Berlin when you’re new in Germany, and our friendly team of coaches and interpreters would be very happy to help you through it.

If you’ve got another problem that’s not listed above, we can get you through it, or refer you to an expert who can!  Just email us the details of your situation or inquiry at coaching (at) and we’ll get back to you with an offer of help.

We’re looking forward to hearing from you and giving you peace of mind with your transition to Germany!
