When you move out of Germany, you must deregister your address. This is called the Abmeldung. After you deregister, you stop paying for health insurance and TV tax. You also receive a deregistration certificate (Abmeldebescheinigung).

In Berlin, you can do your Abmeldung in person at the Bürgeramt, by mail or by email.
