What you should consider when you emigrate to Mallorca if they want to live as currently about 30,000 German, permanently in Mallorca, they must manage once many hurdles. The most important is the national language, and that in my opinion to learn not only to look at the House and apartment search or authorities not clueless. If you want to work on the island and still no job in sight, they need financial reserves anyway to bypass the Joblose time. Because the economic crisis has arrived also in Mallorca and the situation on the labour market is no longer very rosy. Is not so easy to find a job and the pay is lower than in Germany a lot, the cost of living are but just as expensive as in Germany. The island lives mainly from tourism, those who work in this area has good opportunities should have at least basic knowledge of Spanish, English language skills are an advantage. However, the working hours are not necessarily attractive and the payment is also most miserable.

They reach the best starting point if they are applying from Germany at a Majorca-based German hotel chain, a German airline, or a German car rental etc. Usually better paid jobs of these companies, in addition, many of these companies adhere to German labour law. As EU citizens, applies to all also for German, you need no special work permit, but the evidence of formal qualifications and diplomas must be recognised for some professions officially. They relocate to Mallorca, they must register with the registration office, they need a valid passport or ID document and proof of new residence. In addition, they need a N.I.E.. (Nummero de Identidad de Extranjero), which they must apply to the immigration authorities. You will need this number almost every course of the authority.

To emigrate to Mallorca, a suitable apartment is a prerequisite. For a transitional period is recommended therefore a room Shared apartment, which has the advantage to come in contact with other people as a side effect. The Germans, who want to become self-employed on Mallorca, seeking mostly the gastronomy and hotel industry. But one should be always aware, that there are thousands of restaurants, hotels and b & BS in every region on Mallorca. Therefore, even immigrants with good financial reserves slip quickly into a debt trap. Often be calculated incorrectly or underestimated the cost of independence, rents and real estate prices are very high and mostly still a juicy deposit is required. Mostly is still a substantial sum for the acquisition of inventory and also it is quite common that the rent for at least one year must be paid in advance on Mallorca. Also cost for cost for permits or certificates must be factored, documents brought from Germany must be translated so that they are recognised in the Spanish. After the most important step, the business registration, it is usually the same Trade tax due. After the business registration, for which they need also NIE must register at the competent tax office and get a tax identification number there, the NIF (numero de identificacion fiscal). Still joining social security with the Spanish social security institution follows after all these steps.
