Permit under restaurant law; application by non-EU citizens

If you wish to operate a catering business requiring a permit (serving alcohol) for a special occasion, you may be temporarily permitted to do so by the responsible municipality under simplified conditions and subject to revocation.



In principle, a residence permit that allows the exercise of self-employment is required.

In particular, the special reason is a prerequisite for authorization. This must also be explained in detail in the application.

It may also be necessary to check the applicant's reliability, particularly if the applicant's personal circumstances are not known or the applicant is not already in possession of a travel trade license or a permit dependent on his/her reliability.

The premises must comply with the necessary building regulations.


As a rule, the application for permission must be submitted at least four weeks before the special event.
