What is to do before leaving Heidelberg
1. Terminate your rental contract three months in advance
2. Give notice to your electricity and gas company, telephone/ internet provider, cable TV, any newspaper/ magazines subscription.
3. Close your bank account
4. Officially cancel your registration at the registration office
5. Cancel your insurance coverage
6. Make sure to get your IMPRS certificate. For that, send us (imprs-hd @ mpia.de) all relevant information, or ask us what information we need. Have a look to our example certificate. Issueing the certificate may take some time, as we have to collect the signatures from the IMPRS spokespersons.
