Bureaucratic procedures exist in every country for setting up in a new location. And those expats moving to Neuss will find that Germany is no exception. The rules here are on the whole rather clear, if somewhat complicated and not so easy to follow.

In general, anyone who plans to remain here for more than three months will need to register with the local authorities, ideally within the first week after arrival. Everything then depends much on country of birth and nationality.

One great achievement of the EU and its institutions is that most of its 500 million inhabitants can relocate across borders relatively easily. The Aufenthaltsrecht (Residence Act) is a complex paper, which reveals most answers for all the global nationalities.

The process of registration in service-oriented Neuss is straightforward; a short trip to the town hall with the registration form completed with necessary details and a valid passport or official ID.
