List of relocation agencies and relocation consultants in Berlin

List of relocation agencies and relocation consultants in Berlin

These professionals will help you obtain the right residence permit and visa to live, work and freelance in Germany.

Special thanks to Alexander von Engelhardt for bringing up the difference between relocation agencies and immigration lawyers to our attention.

These relocation agencies can make it easier for you to move to Germany and settle in Berlin. They can help you make the move to Germany a little easier by handling some of the relocation work.

I can personally recommend Kathleen Parker from Red Tape Translation, and Johanna Sieben from c/o Germany. They have helped with a few guides on this website.

Relocation agency or immigration lawyer?

Relocation agencies can help you plan your move to Germany: find your first apartment, book German classes, open a bank account, get a cell phone plan, register with basic utilities and so on.

However, relocation agencies can't provide legal services. Visa applications, residence permits applications and business registrations are considered legal consultation. Only lawyers can offer legal consultation. In practice, relocation consultants can help you with that, and they are cheaper than lawyers.

You can find immigration lawyers in our list of English-speaking lawyers in Berlin.

    I used Nomaden after seeing this list. A thing to note about Nomaden in comparison to the other companies is that they also focus on the community aspect of moving to a new city. Their relocation packages are a really good way to meet people, on top of the traditional relocation & admin support. I'd recommend them for any young people moving to Berlin. Their events are super fun & they give lots of practical advice on the whole moving set-up.
