Is Essen your new home? Do you have a lot of questions and are you looking for answers?

Then you have come exactly to the right place!

We at the Welcome Center are pleased to welcome you to Essen. We can give you advice and guidance about any problems or questions regarding your new life in our city.. Many of these questions can be answered on the spot or we can pass you on to the right people. This service is absolutely free.

Do you have a residence title according to the paragraphs 19 – 21 of German residency law (Aufenthaltsgesetz)? Or do you want to apply for such a residence title (e.g. the Blue Card EU)? Then, in addition to our advisory services, we also provide all the required services necessary for the residency and registration law.

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