At the Bürgerbüro, you will receive a proof of registration called Meldebescheinigung, which is needed for many official matters, such as setting up a bank account or obtaining a health insurance.

If you want to live in Germany more than 3 months or work/ study in Germany, you are required by law to register your new residence by submitting an Anmeldung form to the Bürgerbüro.

Health insurance is compulsory for the whole population in Germany: you cannot live in Germany, even temporarily, without being covered by health insurance. There are two kinds of health insurances: Public (GKV) and Private (PKV).

4. Get your tax ID

Within 2-3 weeks after having done the so-called Anmeldung, you should receive, at your registered German address, a letter containing your tax ID (Steuer-ID) . Hand it over to your employer, possibly before getting your first payslip.

5. Open a bank account

You need to open a bank account if you want to live and work in Germany: paying a rent, receiving a salary, registering as a freelancer, and so on. Most of the banks require a proof of your registered address and/or your German tax ID.

6. File your tax return

Anyone who is employed should submit an income tax return for the previous year(s). The tax return has to be filed before the 31st of May. Additional time is granted if your tax refund is done by a tax adviser.
