Expatrio's history

Having lived abroad ourselves, we know that finding the right information on how to relocate and settle in a new country can be difficult. We know that the lack of digitization and personalized support can make navigating German bureaucracy a very frustrating process. Motivated by these issues, we built a fully digital platform that provides all the general information and services to make your relocation to Germany easier. 

At Expatrio, we offer you customized products and services to acquire through our online platform. With our proprietary tool, you are able to check what is necessary for your visa application with clear, jargon-free, and updated explanations. 

We also know that time is a crucial matter while moving to Germany, so you will be able to receive a service confirmation within 24 hours upon successful application. Moreover, our state-of-the-art technology enables us to be cost-effective while offering the best service for very low fees.
