Late resettlement certificate Unfortunately this specification of service has not yet been completely translated.

Late emigrants are German members of the people from the successor states of the former Soviet Union and the other former Eastern Bloc states, who justified their stay in Germany by means of a special admission procedure. The admission of persons who, because of their German ethnicity, are still affected by the consequences of the Second World War and its side effects, is regulated by the Federal Persons For Displaced Persons Act (BVFG). The late emigrant status does not arise on the basis of the admission notice, but only with the issue of a "late resettlement certificate", which you receive after admission in Germany. This status is linked to facilitation of integration into social, cultural and professional life in the Federal Republic of Germany. At the same time, by law, the German nationality is acquired. The certificate must be issued of your own motion, i.e. you do not have to apply for the issue of the certificate.

No further documents shall be submitted for the procedure for issuing a late-settler certificate. The decision-making process is based on the recording procedure.


Preconditions
They meet the late emigrant status (BVFG).
The procedure is initiated on the occasion of registration in the initial reception facility of the Federal Administration Office in Friedland. During your stay in Friedland, you will receive a registration certificate confirming that the certification procedure has been initiated. The late resettlement certificate will then be sent to your place of residence from there later. Spouses or descendants included in the admission notice shall be given a "certificate as a spouse or descendant of a late emigrant".
