Please note that ap­pli­ca­tions re­ceived via post may take some time to pro­cess, which can vary de­pend­ing on the in­di­vid­u­al case. As of 1 Febru­ary 2011, doc­u­ments that have been cer­ti­fied or fur­nished with an apos­tille are sent ex­clu­sive­ly to the ap­pli­cant’s ad­dress in Ger­many for cash on de­liv­ery. For ap­pli­ca­tions from out­side Ger­many, the Ger­man ad­dress of an au­tho­rised re­cip­i­ent, who will pay cash for and re­ceive the de­liv­ery, must be pro­vid­ed.
Should im­me­di­ate pro­cess­ing be nec­es­sary in a par­tic­u­lar­ly ur­gent case, this may be pos­si­ble pro­vid­ed that you speak to the Fed­er­al Of­fice of Ad­min­is­tra­tion in per­son dur­ing the ser­vice times spec­i­fied be­low.
In­for­ma­tion on fre­quent­ly asked ques­tions re­gard­ing le­gal­i­sa­tion can be found on the web­site of the Cit­i­zens’ Ser­vice of the Fed­er­al For­eign Of­fice.

In­for­ma­tion re­gard­ing ap­ply­ing for a cer­tifi­cate of good con­duct can be found on the web­site of the Fed­er­al Of­fice of Jus­tice.
