Special notes

In addition to the registration certificate, the official registration confirmation also serves as proof of residence. This is issued at the time of registration or deregistration. It only contains data on the surname and first name, the doctor's degree, the date of birth, the address, the day of moving in and out, and the date of registration or deregistration. In addition, the registration confirmation states whether it is your sole residence, main residence or secondary residence. You cannot apply for an official registration confirmation.
