About Deregistration.de

Deregistration.de is an online platform that supports expats in the deregistration process. Everyone who leaves Germany to move to another country permanently must deregister. This includes German citizens.

On this page you learn about: What is deregistration (Abmeldung)? Why do I need to deregister before I leave Germany? How do I deregister?

This platform allows you to initiate the deregistration process online.

Simply start by filling out the deregistration form and following the further instructions. We will guide you through all of the steps.

Deregistration.de is a project of SympatMeSympatMe Logo

SympatMe is an established relocation platform that has successfully supported expats moving to Germany since  2014. On SympatMe you can beat German bureaucracy online. You can do all the steps you must take when moving to Germany on our website. From registering, finding accommodation, to opening a bank account and getting your social security number. We will guide you through the process in a straightforward and quick way.

To make this even easier, you can fill out German bureaucratic documents and application forms online – in English. How does this work?! Well. For example, you can fill out the public health insurance application form on our website, in English. Once you have completed the online form, all your data is automatically transferred onto the original German form, which we have linked to the English form. In other words, once you have completed the form, we will send you a PDF of the German official document with your data on it (that you previously entered online!). All you have to do now is to print the document and send it to the right address – which we provide for you!

On SympatMe we also support you by publishing updated relocations news and articles about how it is like to live, work, eat, get friends, find hobbies, go traveling etc. in Germany… For example, our wiki articles discuss All different types of work visa in Germany to illustrating 8 steps to become a freelancer.


If you have any ideas, would like to share our project or become involved in it, please don’t hesitate to get in touch. We are happy to see our project grow.

We hope that we can contribute to making Germany an accommodating place for every newcomer and help them find their way around quickly.
