Abmeldung: deregistration of your address in Frankfurt am Main

What should I know when deregistering my address in Frankfurt am Main?

  • Unfortunately, there is no actual digital deregistration process provided by the administration in Frankfurt am Main. To complete your deregistration you can either go in person or send the required documents via mail (post)
  • Further, you have to follow certain steps and need to understand what registration offices in Frankfurt am Main ask for in order to process your deregistration request
  • You have to adhere certain deadlines of the German law
  • The deregistration form is only available in German
  • And last but not least, you need a German address in order to receive the deregistration confirmation by mail

How can I deregister while I am still in Frankfurt am Main?

deregister in person

In person: You can easily deregister your residency in Frankfurt am Main by going to a local registration office (Bürgeramt) and inform them that you are moving abroad. Below this article you will find a list of the respective registration offices in Frankfurt am Main where you can currently book appointments. To book an appointment, check out their official appointment booking website.

The documents you need for this process are…

  • your current passport
  • the respective completed and signed deregistration form for you + all family members who are to be deregistered (find them below this article under documents)

In case you are moving abroad, you will probably be asked about your follow-up address abroad. However, the most important information the registration office asks for is the country that you are moving to.

Once a local registration office in Frankfurt am Main accepts all required documents, you will receive a deregistration confirmation.

deregister via mail (post) or email

Via mail (post) or email: You can also complete the process by sending the required documents by mail or email to one of the registration offices in Frankfurt am Main (find a list of them below this article).

The documents you need for this process are…

  • a copy of your passport 
  • passport copies of all family members who are to be deregistered from that address 
  • the completed deregistration form for you + all family members who are to be deregistered (find below this article under documents)
  • cover letter If you would like somebody else to receive your confirmation, stating that you would like person X to receive your confirmation (without a cover letter, the deregistration confirmation will be sent to the address you are deregistering per default)

Please note: You will not receive a scan of your deregistration confirmation via email as this is not possible due to data security.

Once a local registration office in Frankfurt am Main receives all required documents, the registration office will process your deregistration. This usually takes 2-3 weeks. However, currently due to COVID-19 delays are possible (up to 8 weeks). If you have not heard from them after 4 weeks, we suggest calling them directly. If no documents are missing the registration office will send the deregistration confirmation to the address you are deregistering per default. Hence it makes sense to indicate a friends’ address where you would like to receive it.

deregister via a service provider

Via a service provider: If you don’t want to deal with this (very) bureaucratic task yourself, you can get assistance from us – Amtio – to get your deregistration done smooth and easy. You can either get support to do it yourself (=self service) or choose our “Personal Assistant Service” to hand over the task to us.

How does COVID-19 affect the deregistration process in Frankfurt am Main?

Due to COVID-19 local registration offices in Frankfurt am Main require you to book an appointment in advance. Dates for appointments are offered 8 calendar days in advance and are activated daily. You can either make an appointment online – here, or by phone (069/212-31600 or 069-115). If you would like to handle your deregistration in person, please respect their rules of conduct during your appointment to keep the risk of infection as low as possible:

  • Wear a mask which covers mouth and nose

  • Be on time for your appointment
  • Come alone – bring only necessary accompanying persons with you
