Moving to another country always means a big change: a different language, a different culture and a different everyday life in terms of professional as well as private life.
This situation often creates a big challenge for expatriates and their families. At the same time, assisting these families means a big challenge for the German host company. Often, the decision on the overseas assignment is made at short notice by the Japanese parent company so that both parties have very limited time for their preparations. On top of all that language barriers and cultural differences make coordination processes complicated and time consuming. Consequently, the situation suddenly can become stressful for all people involved.
Does this sound familiar to you and are you looking for qualified support?
With my Japanese Relocation Service, I provide Japanese companies and their Japanese expatriates in Düsseldorf and surroundings a customised, personal and reliable service for moving and living in Germany.
Finding a home
Together with you, I will search for temporary and long-term accommodation which matches your wishes and needs and I will support you with the leasing formalities.
Navigating successfully in the German jungle of bureaucracy
I am committed to guide you through the jungle of bureaucracy and support you with getting necessary work and residence permissions, domicile registration and change of address notification, transfer of your driving license and will accompany you to the various appointments with government officials.
The practical things organised
Depending on your needs, I will support you with various practical matters such as opening a bank account, getting a mobile phone, landline or internet connection, registering at the German fee collection service for broadcasting (also known as the GEZ), finding the right insurances, looking for a school and kindergarten, purchasing furniture, buying a car and much more…
Settling-in and making a home
Finding a new home is much bigger than moving to a new place – it means to feel at home. I am excited to support you with getting settled in your new environment with, e.g. orientation tours, tips and tricks for living and working in Germany, Cross-cultural Training and individual support with finding language schools, (sports) clubs and other leisure activities. If you ever get into trouble or there is an emergency: I am here to help – during your whole stay in Germany.
Simply and safe- going back to Japan
At the end of your assignment, I am going to take care of all necessary preparation for your move back to Japan or your next destination, e.g. cancel the house lease and organise the refurbishment, cancellation of contracts, subscriptions and memberships, appointments at government authorities and all other aspects related to your move to Japan. I will make sure that your return will be smooth and stress-free.
