Return to home country

You should plan your return to your home country in good time. Reverse culture shock can also occur.

Before you return to your home country, you should do the following:

The Bürgerämter of the city of Hannover are exclusively responsible for deregistering your residence.

You can find more information and the online appointment system of the Bürgeramter here

When moving abroad, you should also close your German bank account to avoid additional costs for account management and administration.

The best way to find out about this is to contact your bank branch and the person in charge directly.

Before you leave Germany you have to cancel your health insurance here in Germany yourself.

For many health insurance companies there are already sample cancellation letters. Look here
