Side entry

A side entry is possible for children from highly mobile families.


Are we a “highly mobile family“?

Families are considered highly mobile when, for professional reasons, one or both parents have to move their place of residence to another country frequently (generally for periods of not more than four years). A one- time placement abroad or general plans to emigrate do not fulfill these requirements. Placement in the group of highly mobile families is dependent on the presentation at the time of registration of valid, written documentation that states that the family, generally within the next four years, for professional reasons, must move to a place of residence abroad.
