Registration with the local Residents' Registration Office

In Germany, it is mandatory for everyone, including Germans, to register at the local Residents' Registration Office.



Residence Title

Non-EU nationals who intend to stay in Germany for more than three months need a residence title for stays of longer duration. In order to apply for it, make an appointment at the immigration office directly after your arrival in Germany.



Health Insurance

You and accompanying family members need to have health insurance cover valid from the first day and for the whole duration of your stay.


Social Security

If you work on the basis of an employment contract you are required to pay fixed statutory social security contributions.
