German citizenship Determination of existence on application

Service Description

You can file an application to establish the existence of your German nationality if there is a well-founded interest in establishing this.

An interest in a determination exists, for example, if

  • German authorities or courts require you to have persisting doubts about your German nationality clarified by the nationality authority after their own examination of evidence already available (for example, German identity papers or birth certificates), or
  • you have to prove your German citizenship to German or foreign authorities or courts by means of a special document despite presenting a valid German identity document (e.g. passport or identity card).

If, upon your application, the citizenship authority determines that you have German citizenship, you will receive a special document (citizenship certificate).
