How To Register Your Address in Germany the fast way
The 7 steps to register your German apartment – without researching, translating or waiting around at the registration office (“Bürgeramt”)
Here’s how we are registering all of our clients addresses for the last 3 years with 100% success rate – the quickest way possible.
By Janis Reinholtz - CEO and Co-Founder of Expat Launcher

After downloading the Expat Launcher 6-Step Visa Cheatsheet, do you want to turn your plans into action and register your address in Germany to finally apply for your visa? Just don’t know how or where to start?


The address registration process can be confusing and very intimidating to a lot of expats. It might be your first interaction with a German authority and you just don’t know what to expect.


You’re not alone… we’ve been there ourselves! Unfortunately, there is no way around it. 



Fact: You Are Legally Obligated To Register Your Address Within 2 weeks!



The German Registration Code (yes, there is such a thing) mandates that you register your address within 2 weeks of moving in.


If you decide not to register your address within that timeframe, the authority can fine you up to € 1000. How many beers could you buy from that?


Although it seems like Germany goes a little bit overboard here, there are some good reasons for you to register your address.

Once you register your address you can:

Apply for a visa resident permit | Get German health insurance | Open a bank account | Apply for a Tax ID | Enroll at a German university | Set up a mobile phone contract | Get an identification card and many other fun things...


Expatriates are usually unsure which authority is in charge for them. To make things worse, every authority requires different forms - most of them in German - and follows their own individual process.


It can be a challenge for native Germans, and it is definitely a tough nut to crack for someone who just arrived.


Another Fun Fact: There are 11,528 registration offices in 16 states, 53 of them just in Berlin


Ok, to be totally honest, I am not 100% sure who counted, but I wouldn't want his job.


If you feel like recounting and correcting that number, please email me. I did, however, count the Berlin offices myself. And the states. 😉


Bottom line: there is a bunch of them. And it can be challenging to find out which one is yours and what exact forms you need and know the process they follow.


So, what is the easiest way for you to register your address?


Is there a service that gives you all the right forms, finds your authority, schedules an appointment and shows you exactly what to do?


There is, and that’s exactly what this page is all about…


The Expat Launcher Address Registration Service


We help dozens of clients all over Germany to get their visa, and ALL of them needed to register their address.


We have dealt with registration offices almost everywhere from small villages like Nennslingen to big cities like Berlin, Hamburg or Munich for our clients as well as ourselves.


After helping people register their address since 2014, we know the local authorities, the needed forms and the procedures like that back of our hands. We designed the ideal service package to make the address registration as easy and quick as possible for you.


Here’s a sampling of what’s included in this service:


Researching the INDIVIDUAL registration office (“Einwohnermeldeamt / Bürgeramt”) responsible for YOU


Reserving an appointment at your local authority at a convenient time for you so you don’t have to wait hours in line (only if available in your city)


ALL needed official forms as a printout matched to your individual authority’s needs – INCLUDING ENGLISH TRANSLATION


Filling out the German forms for you – WITHOUT you needing to get lost in translation – just print them out


How to get the official “Wohnungsgeberbestätigung” from your landlord – and workarounds if they don’t want to help you


Additional information for the 6 special cases – shared apartments (“WG”), parents, married, divorced, widows and minors


What to expect at the appointment (and some GERMAN VOCABULARY that might come in handy)


The Expat Launcher Address Registration Checklist that guarantees you don’t forget anything


The quickest way to get the registration done even if your office does not do appointments (HINT: Mess this up and you might sit in the office for a few hours)


After the registration – what to do next


The legal implications of registering your address – and the REPERCUSSIONS IF YOU DON’T


The 7 step "Cheat Sheet" that virtually guarantees your success…


…and soooo much more.



Personally, I wouldn’t want to waste my time on the research, trying to schedule an appointment, finding the right forms - without even being sure that I have everything needed when I sit at the authority.


I mean it…

Frequently Asked Questions:



Why € 7?


If you’re thinking “€ 7 is cheap…what’s the catch?” then here are three reasons that should put your mind at ease:


  1. € 7 puts this information within the reach of everyone…from students to young professionals and travelers. (And at € 7, you shouldn’t have to make big sacrifices to save some time.)

  2. It weeds out the freebie-seekers. We only want to invest our time in expats serious about living in Germany, and in our experience charging anything…even if it’s just € 1…gets rid of 99% of the knuckle-heads.

  3. We also believe that once you experience this service, you’ll want more and maybe…just maybe…you’ll come back and possibly even upgrade to our full visa service.


But that’s it…


No fine print…no “hidden trials”…no shenanigans. Just the service you need and the results you want.


Is there a guarantee?


Yep…we offer a 100% money back guarantee if you follow our instructions and are not able to register your address.


You either get the results you want or you get your money back. It’s as simple as that!


What Do I Need To Do?


All that is left for you to do is give us some information, print out the filled-out forms and take them to the registration office when you want to. We would get your information to the authority if we could, but German law requires you to register in person.


We will set up a reservation for you at your local authority, give you the filled-out forms and all the information so you’re 100% percent prepared for the appointment.


Please note that some registration offices charge a fee for the registration itself which is not included in this service.


How long will it take to get access to this service?




Your login and access information will be sent to the email address you provide, and you can start with the registration process within 5 minutes. Make sure to use the Coupon Code "TWEL2017AR" to get € 22 off!
