Giving up German residency

Giving up German residency

Yesterday morning I went to the town hall to deregister, effectively giving up German residency. My national ID and my passport were amended to show this change, and I went to work, officially no longer a resident of Germany.

On the one hand, it’s just a formality but seeing this on my ID and in my passport makes it so real, so tangible. I will be a expat, an emigrant, an immigrant, a foreigner.

8 days to go.
