Expat in Germany / Expat in Germania

I have recently relocated to Stuttgart, Germany with my wife. I will start working at the University of Stuttgart in May as a postdoc. Looking forward to the new life!

Before relocating, I attempted to collect as much information as possible in order to face Germany’s infamous bureaucracy. Much useful information is present on the Web. However, I could not find all the fine details that help to prepare yourself, such as which documents to bring for which service. Therefore, I will share my experiences in the post category expat. My experiences will (of course) be reported from the point of view of an Italian moving to Germany. My hope is that they will be useful to anyone moving here. I will write these posts both in English and in Italian.

My sono trasferito di recente a Stoccarda in Germania, insieme a mia moglie. Inizierò a lavorare per l’universitá come postdoc (ricercatore). Non ved(iam)o l’ora di iniziare una nuova vita!

Prima di trasferirci, ho tentato di collezionare più informazioni possibili per poter affrontare la temuta burocrazia tedesca. Ci sono molte informazioni in Internet, ma spesso non vanno nei dettagli, tipo quali documenti servono quando si richiedono certi servizi? Per questo motivo inizio la nuova categoria di post expat. I miei post saranno scritti da un punto di vista di un italiano che si sposta in Germania. Questi post saranno scritti sia in italiano che in inglese.
