Having trouble getting your Anmeldung in Berlin?

Registering your address is supposed to be simple, right?
Until you can't find an appointment for months.
... and one missing paper means you're back at the end of the queue.
Please, sit back and let Red Tape Translation do it for you.

Book Red Carpet Registration and let us take it off your hands.

Red Tape are the real heroes! Every time I find myself in a bureaucratic nightmare (often!), Kathleen and her team come in to save the day. Most recently, Elizabeth assisted me and I was so pleased to work with her. Truly professional and understanding. Thank you for making our lives all a little easier!

An interpreter will:

  • Guide you through filling out the form/s online
  • Check your documents for accuracy and completeness
  • Visit you at home or at work to pick up your original papers
  • Visit the Bürgeramt on your behalf
  • Register your address and apply for your tax ID number
  • Return your documents and Anmeldung to you on the same day

The whole process can usually be wrapped up within 10-14 business days of booking, sometimes sooner.

How we get you registered in Berlin

  • 1. Book and pay for Red Carpet Registration

    Book online and make payment with just a few clicks. We’ll then get in touch on the next business day.

  • 2. Read our customised Anmeldung guide

    We’ll book the next available appointment for you, keeping your availability in mind, and we’ll tell you exactly what we need you to have ready on the day. You can book an online consult at no extra charge to fill out your forms, or just use the generator or guide we send you and you’ll have it done in a matter of minutes.

  • 3. Let us check your work

    Send us the forms and documents as PDFs a few days before your registration appointment and we’ll go over them with a fine-toothed comb. If we notice any errors or expect any obstacles from the authorities, we’ll let you know.

  • 4. Meet your interpreter wherever suits you

    On the day, a Red Tape interpreter will come and meet you at your home or workplace. We’ll collect your original documents and keep them safe as we travel to the Bürgeramt. Don’t worry, you’ll get everything back within 2-4 hours.

  • 5. Stay in touch

    While we travel across town and handle your registration, it’s important that you stay reachable by phone in case there are questions. There often are! We keep you in the loop and let you know when we’re headed back to your home or workplace.

  • 6. Anmeldung complete

    We will return your original documents to you personally and present you with your registration certificate (Anmeldebestätigung). This happens on the same day. If you’re out and about and you give your consent, we can drop everything off in your letterbox instead.

An amazing company that is a joy to work with and completely removes the hassle of relocation and residency to Germany. Truly, I could not recommend more highly.
