Countdown to Your Move to Berlin

Countdown to your move to Berlin3You should remember that when you move abroad, there is a great amount you need to do beforehand. Unless you want to deal with it after you have moved to Berlin, which would be incredibly stressful, it would be a good idea to start now. Here, we have assembled a list of tasks that must be carried out before you move from London to Berlin.

Sort out your documents

Firstly, before everything, ensure that your passports are valid and up-to-date and that all members of the family have one. If not, you must apply for one. You should also make sure that you have all your other important documents with you including birth certificates and so on. Make sure you have them all with you and make sure they travel with you too.

Valid Visa

You must make sure you have a valid visa or work permit on you. Also, if you have pets and you are planning on taking them with you to Berlin, make sure you have them sorted out with a pet passport and injections.

Talk to your employerCountdown to your move to Berlin2

When you move abroad, it is sensible to inform everyone you know of your move. Don’t let them know at the minute either. You want to leave pleasantly so that, if you do decide to return, you have friends rather than enemies. The same applies to your employer. If you are quitting your job, you want to let your boss down gently so that you leave on good terms.

Open bank account

If you wish, close down your bank account in London and open a foreign bank account in Berlin. It will be a very valuable thing to have. However, you can keep your U.K. bank account and open a bank account in Berlin additionally.

Learn the lingo

Before you move from London to Berlin, you ought to learn a few phrases, as this will be a good initial start. Often, ex-pats tend to start learning the language after they have moved there, but it would be a good idea to get a feel for the language beforehand. It’s easy to learn German – you have many options. You can either pick up a German phrasebook or dictionary, which you can easily find in an English book store or library. Alternatively, why not invest in affordable German Skype lessons?

Find a place to stay

On the first night in Berlin it would be a good idea to stay in a hotel. The first day is usually hectic and if your furniture hasn’t yet arrived there, why not book a night in a hotel? Otherwise you could be forced to sleep on hard floors.

Berlin is the Capital of Germany. With a population of 3,543,676, Berlin is not only the largest city if Germany, but it is the second most populated city in the country. There is very little Berlin doesn’t boast. With its great universities: Humboldt University of Berlin, Berlin University of the Arts , Technical University of Berlin, etc.; museums, festivals, and celebrities, it’s no wonder why it is such a popular city. This is indeed a city that is always vibrant and full of life.
