  • Insurance Card
  • Medical Prescriptions, Vaccination Documents, etc.
  • Driving License
  • Vehicle Documents (all available documents such as vehicle approval, EU type approval, etc.)
  • E-Form / Portable Documents (European documents confirming social insurance and employment-related information)
  • Original Employment References, School Reports, Certificates, Diplomas (with German/English translation where necessary)
     

Things to check

  • Entry requirements and residence permit
