Things to do after arriving in Germany

You can open a bank account with N26 in just 8 minutes below. Then submit the SEPA mandate in your popsure account.

(2) Upload your Immatrikulationsbescheinigung

It might not look exactly like the one below, but you probably know what this is and already have it as you're applying as a student.

(3) Take the letter from TK to your university to sign, and upload a photo of it

This needs to be filled out by your university as final confirmation that you are indeed eligible for TK. Important: Be sure to also take long your "visa letter" or "proof of future health insurance coverage" along too. 

(4) Let us know your address in Germany, so we can send you the health card

Finally let us know you address - we'll need to know this so we know where to post your health insurance card from TK.
