Moving to Germany?
We Have Experience with Moving to Germany
If you are considering moving to Germany, here are some tips on what to take into account. The legislation would be very different from your home country. So there are a few things to consider.
First and foremost, it is important to know that it makes a difference how long you intend to stay in the country. If the stay is less than 6 months, you can request to continue to be registered with residence in your home country. This is useful if it’s just a work or study stay.
If it is more than 6 months, you can still be registered in your home country if you still spend holidays and weekends there. However, it will be assessed whether you meet the requirements, which may vary from case to case.
You do not need a work permit if you are an EU citizen, as Germany is a member of the EU. If you get a job in Germany, you should stop paying tax in your home country (in the EU) and get taxed in Germany instead. But make sure you read up on this and that you have registered your move in your home country.
Health insurance is mandatory in Germany, and you cannot use the health insurance of your home country unless you are still a citizen and pay tax there. As a rule, it is the employer who must ensure that you are registered.
In addition to the above, it is of course also important to remember to register your relocation in the relevant register in your home country.
Choose a Moving Company With Experience With Moving to Germany
When moving internationally, it is generally a good idea to have a partner with experience as many unforeseen situations can occur. A professional moving company with many years of experience in international affairs, you ensure that all the common challenges are considered and that the task is carried out with care. Experience with international moves also means that the supplier can advise you on things that you otherwise might not have thought of.
What Does It Cost to Move to Germany?
Making a precise offer on a move to Germany requires as much information as possible about the size of the task. It is important to know where the furniture is to be picked up, how much there is, whether there are special needs, e.g. in the form of heavy furniture, and whether it is from a house, an apartment, an office — and on which floor? Furthermore, Germany is a large country, so there is also a price difference, depending on where in the country you are moving to.
To get the best possible offer, it is necessary to start planning in good time, as an international move requires thorough preparation, and suppliers have a better chance to give a good price if they have sufficient time to plan. Additionally, all transport options will also be cheaper when booked well in advance.
