Reporting presence for short stays

If you are moving into an apartment or a house, you must report your presence within 1-2 weeks  of arrival - the exact deadline depends on the Bundesland where you are staying.

To do so, you should go to the municipal registry office.

If you don't, you could incur sanctions.

For more information, check with the municipal registry office and or the foreigners' registration office where you are staying.
