Online procedure

Naturalization - Quick-Check

You can use the quick check to carry out a non-binding check of the naturalization requirements. However, the naturalization procedure is only initiated once the application and all required documents have been submitted. The final decision is made after the competent authority has checked the requirements.

The examination of the requirements is already carried out in accordance with the new regulations on the modernization of citizenship law passed by the Bundestag on 19.01.2024 and approved by the Bundesrat on 02.02.2024. The law is expected to come into force in the middle of the year.
