Emigration from Hamburg to England: How to make your removal work

Emigrate and arrive- to ease the process we suggest to start a British bank account as immediately after the removal (or even better, before). Without such account a lot of steps are barely possible, which is why we suggest the start of the account as soon as possible.

A compulsory registration as in Germany does not exist in the British area. Although you will have to request a national insurance number upon signing your employment contract. This social insurance number will register you in the public social insurance system of Great Britain. You are eligible for health services as soon as the registration took place. The following documents will be needed for the application at the social security office:

  • passport or child passport( id-card is no longer of use after de-registration in Germany)
  • employment contract of employer in Englanf
  • letter from the employer
  • proof of address in England

In case you want to make your removal to England or Scotland official you can request a residence permit, although it is not a necessary step for emigrating to England.
As soon as your passport is expiring you can renew it at the German embassy. Your drivers license will not have to be changed since it keeps its validation entirely.
