FAQ

Accommodation

Does the Basic Package (no. 1) include accommodation?
No, it doesn't. Package 1 - the Basic Package - is for all those who already have an accommodation in Munich or want to look for it completely on their own. Therefore, the Basic Package includes all components of a professional relocation service except for the accommodation service.

We assist you with the visa application process, getting a German bank account, a health insurance, a mobile phone SIM card, the semester ticket, a language course, an intercultural training, an orientation tour and two sight-seeing trips.

Please take note:

The relocation consultant also accompanies you to the citizen's office and assists you with the residence registration that must be made at the latest one week after arrival in Germany. In order to obtain this registration confirmation from the local authorities you need a housing provider confirmation (in German: “Wohnungsgeberbestätigung”) from your landlord. Without this housing provider confirmation TUMint is not able to help with the registration at citizens' office.

Additionally, a relocation consultant supports you to start the application process for a residence permit (visa validity is not sufficient in most cases). Therefore you will have to book an appointment at the foreigners' registration office in order to apply for the certificate of fiction/eAT (in German: elektronischer Aufenthaltstitel = electronic residence permit). Appointments are usually made at the end of the visa validity period and are accompanied by the relocation consultant.

Booking / Preparation

With how much advance notice should I book the TUMint Relocation Service package?

You can book the packages whenever you want, however, we would recommend at least three months before your planned arrival in Germany. Especially the visa application process can take several weeks, sometimes even months. 
It's best to take a look at the homepage of the German diplomatic mission right now and find out about the appointment situation!

Arrival

How will my arrival in Germany look like?

Once you arrive in Germany we will pick you up at Munich airport or main train station and bring you to your accommodation.

Upon arrival you will receive a German mobile phone prepaid SIM card with a starting credit of 30,- €. We also give you your bank account documents. If already available we will assist you in printing your IsarCard Semester from a MVG machine (Münchner Verkehrsgesellschaft = Munich transportation company), so that you can use it right away for the public transportation in Munich.

The cost of the semester ticket "IsarCard Semester" of 201,60 € is included in the package and will be born by TUMint Student Relocation Service.

Further, the relocation consultant will take you to a little orientation tour close to your accommodation in order to show you the most important points of interest nearby.

At the latest one week after arrival in Germany the residence registration must be done at the registration office. The relocation consultant accompanies you to the citizen's office and assists you with the residence registration. In order to obtain this registration confirmation from the local authorities you need a housing provider confirmation (in German: “Wohnungsgeberbestätigung”) from your landlord. Without this housing provider confirmation TUMint is not able to help with the registration at citizens' office.

Additionally, you will have to start the application process for a residence permit (visa validity is not sufficient in most cases). Therefore you will have to book an appointment at the foreigners' registration office in order to apply for the certificate of fiction/eAT (in German: elektronischer Aufenthaltstitel = electronic residence permit). Appointments are usually made at the end of the visa validity period and are accompanied by the relocation consultant.

Bank account & banking matters

Do I get a bank account in Germany?

In order to apply for a German VISA, you will have to present a blocked German bank account. In addition to the blocked bank account that is needed for the visa application, a corresponding current account (checking account) in Germany is prepared, which is active upon entry. There are no monthly account management fees for this bank account. A one-time setup fee of 250,- Euros is included in the package price. The account documents are handed over upon entry and are ready for immediate use.

Miscellaneous

Why do I need health and liability insurance?

Most German embassies insist on two insurances: private travel health insurance and general German statutory health insurance.
TUMint assists in taking out travel health insurance and preparing for membership in the statutory health insurance.

Upon request, TUMint can also help in finding liability insurance. Liability insurance is further one of the most important insurances in Germany. It covers you when claims for damages are made against you because you were careless or unlucky for a short time (e.g. accident, house fire). Such damages can easily be five figures or even much more expensive, while the insurance is very cheap.
