Information block, provisional

The data stored in the population register can be blocked on request. This means that the data may no longer be passed on to third parties or organizations.

A distinction must be made between blocking for personal reasons (e.g. threat, adoption) or in general (e.g. disclosure to political parties, churches or online information).

  • ID card or passport.


The customer must make credible that he or another person can endanger life, health, personal freedom or similar interests worthy of protection as a result of the information from the register.


A block for personal reasons will be set up for the time being. The blockages are carried out by the residents' service.

The register of residents will contact the applicant for the final blocking.

The blocking does not apply to authorities, courts or health insurance companies.
