Citizens of the European Union (EU), the European Economic Area (EEA) and Switzerland
When you arrive, the immigration office will issue you a residence card as proof of your freedom of movement, as long as you meet certain requirements (marriage status, sufficient means, health insurance). Exception for citizens of Switzerland and their family members: You must notify the local immigration office of your intention to stay within three months of entering the Saarland. You will receive a residence permit to show that you have the right to stay.
Registration with the authorities is mandatory in Germany. If you move into an apartment in the Saarland, you must register at the registration office (Einwohnermeldeamt) in the city or municipality in which you live. In the Saarland, you must do this within a period of one week.
