By the person behind the blog Settle in Berlin

Since 2011, SiB is one of the preferred source of information for newcomers in Germany. It has been quoted by the Berliner Zeitung, and as a go-to resource. It is also regularly recommended on forums, Facebook, Twitter and Reddit.

What they said

  • It seems like a small thing but the Anmeldung can be a huge hurdle when moving to Germany. Appmeldung spares you the stress of not knowing exactly what to do and the time it takes to fill-it in. It saves time for the German administration too!

  • The Anmeldung process was one of the most worrying things about moving to Berlin for me – Appmeldung took some of that worry away and made my application process a lot smoother! Couldn’t have done it without it.

What is Appmeldung about? How does it work?

Appmeldung is the easiest way to fill-in the form you need to register residence at the Bürgeramt. A smart questionnaire allows you to place the right information in the right fields. This saves you time and avoid mistakes. You just need to download your form at the end.

Is it really free?

Yes, Appmeldung is completely free to use. It is supported by donations and by affiliate commissions if you decide to sign-up for one of the partners presented at the end of the process.

What happens with my data? Is it safe?

Your data is temporarily saved onto Germany-located servers to process it (= making a completed form out of the information you entered.). Once your completed form has been sent, your data will be permanently deleted from the servers. The Advanced Encryption Standard (AES) is used with a 256-bit key to encrypt data at rest including the backups of the information. It is also naturally GPDR compliant. You can read more about data privacy in our data privacy page.

Does it work for all cities in Germany?

Yes. It uses a universal template that works for all & it accommodates city-specific forms for major cities.

Who is behind Appmeldung?

This little service was drafted by Bastien Allibert, the editor behind the blog Seeing that many people were struggling with that seemingly simple topic, he decided that there was maybe a better way to start life in Germany.

Can i register with my spouse/partner?

Yes, but Appmeldung only supports the case where your partner/spouse moves in with you at the same address in Germany.

What about the various data protection decisions i can take (for Hamburg, Munich, Frankfurt)?

Appmeldung automatically opts you out of any data-sharing scheme so your data is not communicated to third-parties such as parties, religious organizations and so on.

Are there any limitations to Appmeldung?

Yes, but it probably doesn’t concern you. It only allows the registration of your main place of residence. i.e: You can’t specify you have other addresses in Germany. This is fine for 99% of people moving to Germany as they only have one address usually. Also, since this service is free, it runs on limited server capacity. Please note that you might have to fill in your birthname/former name in manually, in case you register under a new last name.
