Even though we just recently launched in the summer of 2023, we have long-term vision to become the de facto source of information for expats in Germany

Our mission

in one phrase: “Simplifying an expat’s live in germany”

If you have been in Germany for a while, you will soon realize that the main complaint that expats have in this country is the “excess of German bureaucracy”. To get any administrative document (ex: driving license, health insurance, residency permit…) you will have to go through multiple steps in a complex system that is not designed with English-speaking expats in mind.

The second complaint I keep hearing from my expat friends is the lack of information in English. Very few German websites have an English version, so you end up always using “Google Translate” extension to get your info which is fine. However, the issue is that since the information on most sites is in German, you wouldn’t even be able to find these sites if you search in English on Google.

TwoExpats.com comes as a solution to help solve these two main problems that expats are facing while living in Germany. Our goal is to provide well-researched information and guide you to make the right decision all in a matter of minutes. Whether you are looking for “how to convert your driving license to a German license” or for “the best credit card in Germany”, we are here to help.

Rachid Idali

Founder & editorial director

I am a seasoned expat (for the lack of a better word) that has lived in 3 countries (Malaysia, France and now Germany) in the last 5 years. I moved to Berlin in 2022 to pursue a new job at a tech company. After experiencing the lack of reliable and researched information for expats in Germany, I decided to launch TwoExpats hoping to build the website I wish had existed.
