In Germany, you must register your apartment with one of the many Berlin Bürgeramts within 14 days of moving in to your apartment, including moves within Germany. You must also de-register if you leave Germany. It is not possible to register by post but you may make an appointment online at any of the Berlin Bürgeramts.
General Required Documents
- Completed form (not necessary for moves and re-registration within Berlin)
- Einzugsbestätigung (Move-In confirmation from your landlord)
After you register you will receive your confirmation of residence registration. This document is required for opening a bank account, applying for residence permit, etc.
