Recent Information

The Welcome and ServiceCenter (WSC) remains open. Because of the Corona-pandemic you can only visit the WSC with an appointment. You can find detailled information on the subpage "We are there for you".

Welcome to Essen - Let's make it your home!

We at the Welcome Center are pleased to welcome you to Essen!

Do you have a residence title for an employment for the highly qualified, for ICT, as a researcher, for self-employment or as a freelancer? Or do you want to apply for such a residence title (e.g. the Blue Card EU)? Then we can provide all the required services necessary according to the residency and registration law.

We can give you advice and guidance to answer your possible questions. Many of these questions can be answered on the spot or we can pass you on to the right people. This service is for free.

You are not a member of this group? No problem. Our colleagues at the Citizen Center and the foreign office will help you.
