After the residence permit has been granted we will also assist in other mandatory registrations and other relocation needs. The newcomer and their potential family will not be left alone even after their immigration.

Other registrations

One is not clear of the bureaucratic labyrinth with only the residence permit however. It is extremely important that other official registrations are also taken care of promptly and with care. The necessary registrations will easily take a lot of time and even seemingly insignificant aspects if overlooked may stall getting to productive work by weeks.
