About Expatrio

Expatrio - Relocation made easy

Expatrio is a digital relocation platform for students, workers and expatriates that wish to live in Germany. 

We built a customized solution allowing you to minimize bureaucratic processes associated with moving to Germany. Our service enables you to open blocked and current bank accounts and also secure the required insurances with trustworthy partners, such as Techniker Krankenkasse (TK), DR-WALTER, Monese, and others. Our solution is accepted and approved by the German Federal Foreign Office. 

Expatrio’s mission 

Our mission is to help international students, workers and expatriates to relocate to Germany. We provide a fully digital, trustworthy, customized, and straight to the point service to ensure that relocation in Germany is seamless.

Expatrio’s vision

Our vision is to be the digital relocation partner enabling people from all around the world to relocate to Germany seamlessly. Expatrio is an innovative company providing digital and integrated services with state-of-the-art technology for students and workers.


Founding Expatrio and managing the emerging company on a daily basis is only possible by combining complementary competences.

Expatrio's story

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.
