What documents do I need for employment?
The following documents are required in original:
- Identity card
- Bank account in Euro
- Qualification diploma if necessary (depending on the job)
- For professional drivers, driver's documents are required
Who pays for transportation to the employer?
As you have a direct employment contract with the German employer without salary difference, the cost of transport will be paid by you.
How do I get there?
Once obtaining the confirmation of your employment, you will receive all the details regarding the address where you need to go, including the transport possibilities from Romania to Germany. Our company has as partners transport companies from Romania and Europe such as Flixbus www.flixbus.ro or Romfour www.romfour.ro
Our operators will find the most optimal and advantageous route for you, after which they will inform you about the company you will leave with and the ticket price.
Is anyone waiting for me in Germany?
After completing your employment documents, booking and paying for the transport ticket, our operators will keep in touch with you, informing the employing company in advance about the approximate date and time when you will arrive. It is important to make sure that your roaming service is activated on your mobile, as you will be contacted by telephone during your journey to the employer by one of our operators or the German company where you will work.

For a start, the German employer offers you a single staff room, the rent being withdrawn from your monthly salary. The cost of rent differs from the area and its size.
After the accommodation period you can find a larger home depending on the requirements of each.
Your employer can help you find your favorite home.

The contact person who will pick you up is pre-arranged even before you leave for Germany.
Who will register me at finance authorities and registration of address office in Germany?

Every employee in Germany must report in person to the local finance authority and the German registration of address office, namely the Finanzamt and the Einwohnermeldeamt.
Likewise, the opening of a bank account is carried out only in person, thus respecting the European standards for the observance of confidential personal data.

The written contract is signed on average within 5-7 working days because this contract is sent from the accounting office of the German employer.
