Apostilles for abroad
Unfortunately this specification of service has not yet been completely translated.

The Office for Migration is entitled to affix the apostille or pre-certification to public documents that were issued by an authority of the Free and Hanseatic City of Hamburg. Documents from the Hamburg courts and notaries are not included. These are provided with an apostille / pre-authentication by the district court or regional court president. For certificates of good conduct, you can obtain an apostille / pre-certification from the Federal Office of Justice.
The original document (s) issued in Hamburg.


An apostille / authentication is document-related and not personal, which is why a person who is not affected can apply for this at the Migration Office without authorization. A written application is also possible; the country for which the apostille is intended must then be specified.
