Apply for a registration certificate

For your purposes, you will receive a certificate from the population register about the data stored there about you.

From now on, you do not need an appointment for this request at the BürgerServiceCenters Mitte, Nord and Stresemannstrasse. You can do this at the Express counter. Please note the different opening hours of the express counters in the various BürgerServiceCenters.

Registration certificates are generally subject to a fee.

However, in certain individual cases (e.g. if you are receiving benefits under SGB II or SGB XII or if you have a specific purpose), a fee waiver may be granted upon request. Please provide appropriate evidence.
For pension purposes, especially with an institution abroad, a certificate of registration can be issued, which is valid as a certificate of living.

For child benefits, a registration certificate can be issued which, in addition to personal data, includes information about the children who are registered at the same address as the applicant (so-called household certificate). Please bring the form you received from the child benefit office.


Important: This is a service under municipal responsibility. Registration relationships of other municipalities cannot be certified.
