Arriving at Stuttgart

Both EU and Non-EU citizens are required to register at one of the residents’ registration offices (Bürgerbüro, Rathaus) of the town they have taken up residence. This must be done within the first fourteen days after having moved into an apartment or house if the stay in Germany is intended to last longer than 90 days. If you have not found a permanent place yet, you may also register with the address or your temporary accommodation at the residents’ registration offices of the town of Stuttgart.

For residents’ registration the following documents must be provided:

German universities do not provide medical service for students and staff on campus. The addresses of doctors, dentists, and hospitals can be found online. This site also enables you to find medical doctors who speak other languages than German. Choose a language in the search criteria "Erweiterte Suche" -> "Fremdsprache".

Generally speaking, you have to make an appointment with the doctor before you go. Some general practitioners also have open consultation hours. Don’t forget to take along your health card (Gesundheitskarte) if you are insured through statutory German health insurance. If you hold a European health insurance card, present this at the doctor’s. If you are insured through a private health insurance, take along your insurance policy and make sure the doctor takes notice of it, so that she/he knows how to charge you for his/her services.

If you become ill at night or during the weekend you may call the on-call duty 116 117. In case of an emergency you can directly go to the Emergency Medical Service of Stuttgart doctors on duty or call 112 for an ambulance.
