The world of consulates in Stuttgart
Stuttgart's residents come from 170 countries and the city has Germany's highest proportion of citizens from abroad at 40%, a figure that's always rising through a continual influx of newcomers.
There are lots of consulates to look after the interests of this multicultural population or for Stuttgart people who need a visa to visit a foreign country or information for a trip abroad.
Put your name here, your address there, then sign on the dotted line... If you want to watch TV in your new home, make a phone call or turn on the heating and lights, you have to fill in lots of forms.
The trip to the Einwohnermeldeamt – Residents Registration Office – should be one of the first things you do.
The Baden-Württemberg registration law says you must notify the authorities within a week of moving to a new neighborhood.
How to make your moving day a success
After you’ve found your new home, you’ll want to make your moving day a success too.
In addition to many helping hands and packing boxes you’ll need a furniture truck and, of course, free parking space in front of your old and new homes.
