Before you leave Darmstadt
Before you leave Darmstadt, it is important to take care of some final details:
- Cancel contracts! Most accounts or contracts (e.g. rental leases, mobile phone contracts, insurance policies, and broadcasting fee) in Germany automatically renew, so it is important that you cancel them before you leave.
- Close your bank account! It is also a good idea to close your bank account and take care of any outstanding bills while you are still in Germany, as this is more difficult to manage from your home country.
- Deregister with the city! You are required to deregister at the residents’ registration office before departing.
Please let us know your home address or new address, so we can forward any letters or documents to you, if necessary.
