Hey Tarek,

I did a little research for you. Unfortunately it is very hard to find a flat in Berlin. I experienced that firsthand last year. But there are some Initiatives and Organisations which can help you to find a flat.

1. The best would be if you go to the "Evangelisches Jugend- und Fürsorgewerk" (EJF) in Turmstraße 2, House 'K'. You can either call them: (030) 30 873-652 or visit the office on Monday, Wednesday or Friday. Which languages do you speak by the way? E. g. Monday and Wednesday you can get consulting in arabic as well.

2. You can register yourself and the other person on http://www.home4refugees.org/ which is still under development or on http://www.fluechtlinge-willkommen.de/ . Just klick 'You are a Refugee?' and you can register yourself. Flüchtlinge Willkommen (Refugees Welcome in english) connects refugees with apartment-sharing communities.

I hope that will help! Good luck for you two!

Best wishes
Torben

Try here http://berlincheap.com/category/flats/ I think it would be best to go for WBS (that's the paper you get in Bürgeramt) if you don't earn more that 18.000 a year i think. Without that even if you are on job center it can be hard. But try first. I would suggest Howoge and to go personally to their center.

Checking at the apartment for interested ppl set by the Degewo is tomorrow at 14.30. you need to call in the morning the number from that page in order to have your name on the list.

@Alikx Lieber Alikx,

du hast gefragt, wo du in Berlin eine Wohnung finden kannst. Verstehst du ein bisschen Englisch? Dann findest du bei dieser Frage hier gute Antworten. Wenn du sie nicht verstehst, würde ich sie dir eben auf deutsch übersetzen.

Was hier nicht mit aufgelistet ist, ist die Seite:  http://www.woloho.com/ . Wenn du schon etwas deutsch kannst, kannst du im Bereich "Home" ein Gesuch schreiben, was für eine Wohnung du suchst etc. Und deine Handynummer angeben. Leute, die etwas für dich haben, können dich dann anrufen. Du kannst es aber auch in englisch schreiben.


Liebe Grüße

Henriette

Lieber Firas,
auf deine Frage nach der Wohnung in Berlin für zwei Leute, kannst du hier nützliche Informationen finden. Schau in die Antworten und auf die LInks. Wenn du kein Englisch verstehst, dann kann ich auch eine Übersetzung für dich machen.

Auch wenn ich mitbekommen habe, dass die Wartezeiten dort sehr lang sind:

Die EJF kann dir auch weiterhelfen:  https://www.ejf.de/einrichtungen/migrations-und-fluechtlingsarbeit/fluechtlingsberatung-berlin.html

ich hoffe ihr findet schnell etwas
Liebe Grüße
Henriette

@yousef You can find some informative informations listed in this posts.

You will see, that unfortunately it takes a while to find an apartment in Berlin, even if its just one room. But with some luck and maybe some help from others you will manage that!

Moabit Hilft, its an initiative in Berlin, they are helping people with finding a flat in Berlin. They also know the institutions you have to contact and the paperwork that probably has to be done! Here is a brief explanation about their work and their contact aswell:

I Hope this will help you!

Let us know if you need further help!

Best
Henriette

I hope these informations can help you!

I linked you to this question, because there are good answers already given to people who have comparable issues to yours. Especially when you already have all the papers requested, they: https://www.ejf.de/einrichtungen/migrations-und-fluechtlingsarbeit/fluechtlingsberatung-berlin.html
can help you! But from what I know, you unfortunately have to wait a while. Sites like http://www.immonet.de/ , https://www.immobilienscout24.de/ canhelp aswell to find a flat. You just need to tipe in how many rooms you want, how much it should cost maximum and in which city you are looking and they will find apartments for you, that fit your requests! You can also register with your email, so that they will send you a mail everytime there is a new apartment.
