Instructions

  • To obtain a birth certificate from the Federal Republic of Germany, you must contact the competent German agency (i.e. the "Standesamt" or Registrar's Office). Your letter should be addressed to the Standesamt of the place (Village, Township, City) where you were born.
  • You can find the contact information for your Standesamt by searching the World Wide Web for the key words: Standesamt+place where you were born.
  • The German phrase for asking for an international* birth certificate is:
    • "Ich bitte um Ausstellung einer internationalen Geburtsurkunde für ... (first name/middle name/last name), geboren am ... (date of birth) in ... (place of birth). Eltern: ... (name of father) geboren am ... (date of birth) in ... (place of birth) und ... (maiden name of mother) geboren am ... (date of birth) in ... (place of birth)."
  • Please indicate the month of your date of birth in letters and not with numbers, since doing so could lead to a mix-up (in Germany, the date 10/12/56 refers to December 10, 1956). Information about the fee will be sent to you with the certificate.
  • Please do not forget to mention your name and address!

Note: We recommend ordering the international version of the birth certificate. This version is already translated into several languages, including English and French, and will save you the expense of a translation.
