Still have questions? We will answer them.
Do you still have questions about naturalisation in Germany or about German citizenship? The public enquiry service of the Federal Government Commissioner for Migration, Refugees and Integration will be happy to assist.

Please understand that we cannot offer binding legal advice. If this is what you require, please contact a lawyer, advice centres run by charitable organisations, or other individuals or organisations who are specially authorised to provide such advice.

What we cannot do:

  • decide on naturalisation or make other administrative decisions
  • instruct other authorities
  • carry out legal work in individual cases

What we can do for you:

  • explain administrative procedures
  • explain laws and specialised terminology
  • alert the relevant authorities to specific cases
  • inform and advise you which body or authority can address your concerns

Write us an email via service-integration[at] or call us on +49 (0)30/18 400-1640.
