  1. Brexit / Applying for German citizenship

    So final update guys, here is my timeline:   Einbürgerungstest taken on 05.12.2018 Results received of test 12.01.2019 (passed, so took around 5 weeks including the Christmas break)   B1 language test date 19.01.2019, results received exactly 5 weeks later   Appointment at the Landratsamt to fill all forms in and hand over documents 28.02   Today I became a German citizen, picked my certificate up!!!!!
  2. Hi guys,   wonder if anyone can help me.   I am currently preparing my tax return for 2018 and received some money last year from a company I worked for that went insolvent/got taken over by another company back in 2009.   So I have tried entering this money and tax taken off, Solidarity payment etc. in Wiso as a second employer according to the info on the Elektronischen Lohnsteuerbescheinigung they sent to me at the time but it keeps giving me an error. Basically for points 22, 25, 26 and 27 on that entry it appears red as the values are 0 (as also on the Lohnsteuerbescheinigung).   Do I need to do anything specific or just ignore that? It gives me the option to ignore but I'm not sure.   Thanks
  3. Brexit / Applying for German citizenship

    I was just told that it had to be about 1 side of A4, hand-written. I mean I could have gotten somebody else to write it for me (wife), but then it would have looked odd if the handwriting was completely different to that on the forms I was filling in!   Still it was acceptable what I did so all good  
  4. Brexit / Applying for German citizenship

    I had my meeting at the Landratsamt last week and had to provide B1 certificate, Einburgerungstest Certificate, Payslips etc but also a hand written CV :-)

  7. Brexit / Applying for German citizenship

    So update on my situation for those interested in timescales!   Took the B1 test on 19.01, went well but waiting for results. My wife called the local Landratsamt here in Mindelheim and apparently I don't have to wait for the test results to fill all of the paperwork in, I have an appointment on 28.02, maybe I will have the results by then anyway. Also the lady there told my wife priority is being given to British citizens obviously due to Brexit, and that as long as the application is submitted by 29.03 all good (you all know that anyway but nice to hear from them that is their understanding too!).   I'll keep you posted!   Update number 462...   I received my B1 test result on Saturday, so exactly 5 weeks after taking the test. I passed and am now off to the Landratsamt on Thursday to hand all of this paperwork in.
