After your arrival
Registration with the local Residents' Registration Office
In Germany, it is mandatory for everyone, including Germans, to register at the local Residents' Registration Office.
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.
You and accompanying family members need to have health insurance cover valid from the first day and for the whole duration of your stay.
If you work on the basis of an employment contract you are required to pay fixed statutory social security contributions.
