Our Story

Motivated by having lived abroad, worked with internationals in Germany, and built digital products before, Alex Ruthemeier, Dominic Otto, and Tim Meyer founded Expatrio in 2017. The idea was to ease the relocation process to Germany by reducing bureaucracy and aggregating the needed services in one digital platform. After we started offering blocked bank accounts and health insurance in 2018, we have gradually expanded our offers. Currently, we're on a mission to provide a holistic solution for relocating to and living in Germany as an international student. Since 2019, we have been further supporting international students in Germany with our non-profit organization, DEGIS.


Our Headquarter

Our office is located in the international and vibrant heart of Berlin Mitte:

📍 Linienstraße 156-157 | 10115 Berlin
