Citizenship - Required documents
Answer
9/20/07 4:45 AM
Hello,

I am going to finish my 8 years (3 years as student with Aufenthaltsbewilligung + 5 years with Aufenthaltserlaubnis) in Germany in October this year. Therefore, I'll get eligible for NE as well as for Citizenship at the same time.

I went to Einbürgerungamt and they aksed me to submit the application for Citizenship along with the documents like Date of birth Certificate, Marriage certificate, Versicherungsverlauf etc.

I have following questions:

1. I was born in India and I don’t have my date of birth certificate. Instead I have one affidavit, which is a stamped letter from court and attested by a notary (isseued this year) on my father’s behalf about my date of birth. Will it be enough for the citizenship application?

2. The date of birth and marriage certificates are in English. Where can I get them translated into German? Do I need to get them later verified also? If yes, then from where? Or Einbürgerungamt will send these anyway to the embassy in India to get these verified/checked?

3. As there is no dual-citizenship agreement between Germany and India, so when will I have to give up my Indian Citizenship and what's the procedure?

I would really appreciate your comments and help in this matter.

Thank you very much!

Hi,

1. I think you should ask the Amt what kind of approval required for birth certificate.

may I ask in which state you are?
thanks.
