No limits: The immigration and visa service of Anders Consulting Relocation Service Germany

ANDERS CONSULTING Relocation Service Germany presents the services for starting your professional life in Germany

“Sure, there are visa agencies everywhere. They then get you a visa to enter the country. But, once you get to the stage of applying for the long-term stay in Germany, you find yourself completely alone with the documentation. That’s when the trouble begins in some circumstances: Documents are incomplete, diplomas are not recognized, proof of health insurance is insufficient.

Sometimes the embassies do not check everything properly and yet still issue a visa. That can mean the applicant needs to get an apostille certificate whilst in Germany, as the application needs to be done in the home country. This is very frustrating and time-consuming!

And you can combine everything with us so beautifully: e.g. booking of temporary accommodation on arrival, accompanied visit to the immigration office, orientation-tour in your new city, moving co-ordination and much, much more. Communication problems between the different service providers such as the visa agency, forwarding agency and relocation company are then eliminated. With Anders Consulting Relocation Service Germany you have only one contact person – in over 100 destinations.

And you don´t have to worry about the extension of your electronical residence permit (“elektronischer Aufenthaltstitel” or “eAT”). We will contact you automatically and well enough in advance. You´ve got a Friend in Germany!”
