Are you planning to move to Germany? If the answer is YES, then make sure you have all the necessary documents to make your stay hassle free. Also I will talk about the Unmeldung and Abmendulg.
So what’s an Anmeldung?
An-mendulng (separable verb… I know.. why German why?) simply mean to register. If you are planning to live in Germany (tourists of course don’t need to apply for this) you need to register in the country. It is expected of expats to register in the first month they’ve arrived and within 15 days of signing a contract for an apartment.
Why is it important?
Well, to begin with, it’s illegal to stay in the country without registering (tourist excepted of course.) There is no way to get away from it and if you don’t register you will be fined [or deported] Also is it impossible (or extremely difficult) to get certain things with out and Anmeldung as well (Bank accounts, internet/gas/electricity contracts.)
