Das Einwohnermeldeamt

Wednesday, June 20th, 2007

Today in German Words Explained we explain the word “Einwohnermeldeamt“.

This is the office that you have to report to when you come to Germany in order to register your address and apply for your residence permit.

It is usually located in the town hall, or Rathaus, but may also be in a Bürgeramt.

You should take your passport with you. When you apply for your permit(s) you will need to take other paperwork with you, such as a rental contract for your flat or your employment contract.
