If you are looking for a person (e.g. former acquaintances, school friends), you have the option of requesting information from the relevant registration office or via the Internet (for a fee).



The prerequisite for the provision of simple information from the population register is that you do not use this information for advertising or address trading purposes and that you declare this to the registration authority.

To obtain extended information from the population register, you must demonstrate a legitimate interest.

For group information, a public interest must be justified.
