  1. In Germany, the Center Holds NYT
  2. Hi, Berlin Ausländerbehorde had changed my plastic Aufenthaltstitel from Munich to a sticker on my passport this year when i had gone after the expiry of my passport. Its an unbefristet Niederlassungserlaubnis.   Today i was checked by Police in Bremen and when i showed them a copy of my passport with this sticker, they asked for the 2nd page of this Aufenthaltstitel. But i donot have a second page. I came back and checked my passport page by page, if i had made a mistake and there was nothing else. Just a one page sticker. Earlier too when i wanted to register for DHL delivery in Berlin, the website asked for the 2nd page.   Is it possible that the foreigner's office made a mistake and i need to go back and get the 2nd page?   Thanks.

  5. I recently applied to the Kassenärztliche Vereinigung to get help with finding a therapist here in Berlin.   After applying to KVBerlin I heard nothing for about a week and then received an email from the service stating that due to a technical error and for a limited period my details had been shared on their website on a 'public pathway in the backend of their website', in the form of a form that I had sent them detailing very sensitive medical information, name, DOB, address, basically everything that shouldn't be shared online.   What do I do now? I have no idea about what steps I can or should take, would it be worth legal action against KVBerlin? I feel very strongly about my sensitive medical data being shared online and it could have damaging consequences....   Thanks in advance,
  6. Hello!    I am currently researching the process of buying an apartment in Berlin. I am debating between buying a 2 or 3 zimmer one. I'd like to use the extra room as a guest room for visiting family or office, or rent it out part time to students/Airbnb/etc. I've read through the threads on the income taxation, and still need to see if the math makes sense. I'd still only get a mortgage I could afford on my own, but saving some money could be nice. Ultimately though, I want to know if this is even legal to do with a German working visa. I can also imagine in a few years having a freelancer visa (I'd like to work independently for a while). Would having some income from a rental property that I live at be allowed?
  7. Two Part Podcast Series About Berlin

    Hallo Berlin! We’re Geoff and Alex, the co-hosts of the expat podcast "Americans in Germany Drinking Whiskey." We've both lived in Berlin, Germany for a combined 15 years and the city has become a second home to us. Most of our episodes focus on Germany as a whole, however we are so happy to finally have several episodes dedicated completely to the city that is, “poor, but sexy.” We weren’t able to cover Germany’s capital city with just one episode, so today we are releasing a sequel.   Did you know “Berlin” is based off of a slavic word for swamp? Did you know over 777,000 non-Germans are currently living in the city?

  8. Hi, I want to know if I am eligible to do some side business on Amazon by opening an Amazon store, whilst holding a work visa in Berlin. I am non-EU. My contract expires in a year and I wanted to start a side earning now so that it gains some momentum by the time my contract ends next year. Thanks.
  9. Breaking my apartment contract early.

    Hi TT, need a bit of advice. I currently rent an apartment in Berlin from a company which owns many apartments in Berlin, and I'm looking to move out because I'm moving to a new city from October 1. My apartment's notice is 3 months, but my landlord agreed (in email) to let me go earlier if I supplied them a new tenant. She gave me her colleague's email and asked me to ask the people interested in the apartment to email her directly. So I made a post on FB and I received a lot of interest. Some people came to see the apartment, and when they showed interest, I directed them to the email address given to me.    A few days later, I emailed the colleague myself to ask if she has received emails from tenants, and if there was anything I could do to help with the process. She shot me an angry reply back saying I had no right to put up her work email on FB publicly (which I didn't), and that she had deleted all those emails without reading. And that instead of giving out her email, I should pick three tenants and collect their docs, and send it to her. Also, she added that Oct 1 isn't possible, they can pick a tenant by Oct 16, but they weren't obligated to.    I was a bit taken aback, but I kept my cool and politely explained in the email that I had indeed not posted her email on FB, but instead given it out privately on message. And that I was just doing what was asked. Then I collected the docs of three tenants and sent it to her.    I've been following up and she has just been very uncooperative and rude. She claims she hasn't checked her emails in the past days (which sounds weird to me), and effectively has told me not to call her, not to follow up, she will call when she has questions. Meanwhile, one of my tenants. has found another apartment, and the other two are getting impatient as well.    The problem is, my move out date is pretty close. I'm a bit reluctant to hand over the apartment in case they don't pick a new tenant, since that might mean I have to keep paying rent for another 3 months without actually living in the apartment.    Also, I need to time to sell my stuff, move out, paint the apartment, clean it etc. In case they pick a tenant, then I have to do all this immediately. In case they don't, and I do all of these things, then I am stuck with an empty apartment where I have to sleep and sit on the floor.     I know legally they are well within their rights and I can't do anything. My questions are: 1. Why are people so rude to others who they've never met, and jump to conclusions?  2. Is there anything else I can do - some sort of a gesture that makes them want to help me out?    What would your advice be?
