This is why working with a relocation service like Expat Mgmt can be helpful. We will make sure that you or your employees are registered in Berlin straightaway to avoid delays in other processes. DO NOT BOOK OR PAY FOR ANY APARTMENT YOU CANNOT REGISTER IN.

Life Hack Tip: If you move from a temporary accommodation like a service apartment or furnished apartment into a long-term accommodation you need to reregister yourself in the new address. This is called Ummeldung. Every time you move you need a new registration document! You can book an Anmeldung with Expat Mgmt today, and you won’t have to step foot in the Burgeramt!
