  1. Brexit / Applying for German citizenship

    @kapil354, in Hessen you would need Certificate regardless of where you come from. 
  2. How long did you wait for your Einbürgerungsurkunde?

    @lotsofballoons  Frankfurt am Main: 15 June Document handover                                 20 Aug. Request for fee payment                                 14 Nov. Citizenship confirmed                                   5 Dec. Official Einbuergerung. so it should be about a week or two I would have thought, although the process you went through is a bit different to the one I had here. Fingers crossed!

    @kapil354,it depends where you are. In Hessen we had to provide the Certificate, but I think “up North” in Schleswig Holstein etc. they are a bit more relaxed. NRW is probably more like Hessen I think...

    You have to apply for the ID card once you have the Certificate. Should be done within 4 weeks they told me here in Frankfurt.
  5. Brexit / Applying for German citizenship

    @slammer, You hit the nail on the head there. Having been encouraged to learn foreign languages and broaden my horizons in the 70s & 80s the UK government basically disenfranchised me in 2016. I am so angry about the whole thing that if they want their Passport back they can have it! Even though my English ancestry probably stretches a lot further back than some of the morons that spread all the lies about EU membership...

    @Derek, I sent you a PM.
  7. Brexit / Applying for German citizenship

    In Frankfurt we did the Telc Test. Written part I chose to write a letter to the house management as people were stealing bikes from the cellar...oral part my Polish partner & I had to plan a trip...we went to Belgium with the ICE... 😂.

    @Derek, my test was over by 1 o’clock. Started at 9 but was one of the first called in to the spoken part. We also had 5 no shows (out of 20)....and only one other participant was from an EU country. Completely different bunch of people to those I encountered at the Citizenship test.

    Will be wearing my Black & White striped Eintracht Frankfurt tie...😌

    Received the official invite to the Einbuergerungsfeier today...March 28th in the Paulskirche here in Frankfurt am Main.

    Nice one Ashchar! Doesn’t seem as chaotic in Berlin as I had been led to believe. Notice they wanted the cash before you took the Einbuergerungstest though! 
  12. Brexit / Applying for German citizenship

    I did it from a German phone a few months back. Worked ok.

    @Swimmer it is Mr Feldman (SPD). My friends call him Feldmaus...although he seems a nice enough chap. And yes it’s good to see how many people are getting their citizenship now.   
  14. Brexit / Applying for German citizenship

    @SOS. I am pretty sure that we will get an invite sometime this year. I think they have 2 meet & greets with the Mayor every year. If it’s at a decent time we can have a celebratory lunch or dinner afterwards. Without the Mayor of course....

    Congratulations SOS. Popped down to Sachsenhausen last week and now have ID & Passport. Easiest part of the whole process!
