Moving to Germany

Moving abroad is difficult. There is so much to research, paperwork to fill out, and stuff to keep track of before you go. Moving to Germany is obviously no exception. In the months leading up to moving here, I had my fair share of scrambling to rush paperwork ahead of deadlines and wasting countless hours researching online.

This can be especially frustrating when you, far too often, fail to find a definitive answer out there. This often left me feeling, frustrated, helpless, and most of all, confused. My purpose here is to allay some of your fears. I want to clear up some all too common confusion. And finally, I want to stop you from getting too frustrated with the process.

I’ve set up this page as a launching point for anyone interested in moving to Germany. On this page, you’ll find links to my posts filled with the knowledge I’ve gained and experiences I’ve had while moving here. You’ll find information on some of the most important topics and some of the most frequently asked questions I’ve been asked.

The sheer amount or complexity of paperwork might intimidate you. Visa requirements and procedures might confuse you. And, of course, physically moving yourself and a lot of your crap to another country will be frustrating at best. Luckily for you, I’ve experienced that frustration already. I hope that my experiences can help you in your move to Germany, or any other foreign country.
