When relocating to Germany or staying for business trips longer than three months, you may encounter the unpleasantries of the Germany bureaucratic system. The Einwohnermeldeamt, or the Resident’s Registration Office, will be the first exposure to this system for many. At this office, you must register your new address within 7-14 days of arriving in Germany. We recommend getting this done as soon as possible, as you will face many limitations in the country without this confirmation paper.
Relocation to a country is stressful enough for even the most experienced business travelers, but we’ve created this guide to prepare you and ensure you won’t have to make a second trip to the Einwohnermeldeamt.
