Personal appointments and visits without an invitation or without an appointment are still not possible at the Immigration Office due to the Corona Virus in Germany.

An appointment is required for all matters!

Please stay at home, do not come by!  

Please wait until the Immigration Office contacts you and requests a personal visit, if necessary.

The letter of invitation must be brought along to and presented at the appointment.  

Due to the current pandemic situation, the Immigration Office will further decrease personal visits and appointments. Therefore visits and appointments will only be taken place for matters which cannot be postponed any further.

We ask for your understanding because for that reason, personal appointments can be cancelled on short notice.

In case you are not receiving a personal appointment, the Immigration Office will send you a document or certificate via mail. This document or certificate will be verifying your current residence status.  

If you are not receiving mail with a new document prior to the expiration of your current document, please contact the Immigration Office Dillenburger Str. or your responsible District Immigration Office.  

Please notice the guidelines below when contacting the Immigration Office.
