Abmeldung: deregistration of your address in Munich/ München

What should I know when deregistering my address in Munich?

  • Unfortunately, there is no actual digital deregistration process provided by the administration in Munich
  • Further, you have to request your deregistration in person at one of your local registration offices in Munich or do it by mail (post)/ email 
  • Further, you have to follow certain steps and need to understand what registration offices in Munich ask for in order to process your deregistration request
  • And last but not least, you have to adhere certain deadlines of the German law

How can I deregister while I am still in Munich?

deregister in person

In person: You can easily deregister your residency in Munich 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 Munich where you can currently book appointments. To book an appointment, check out their official appointment booking website here.

The documents you need for this process are..

  • your valid passport (including your visa or permit of residence if you are from a non-EU country)
  • passports of all persons moving away in case of a deregistration of additional family members
  • filled-out deregistration form (find it 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 Munich accepts all required documents, you will receive a deregistration confirmation right away and the deregistration process is completed.

deregister via mail (post) or email

Via mail (post) or email: In case you already left Munich/ Germany you can also complete the process by sending the required information and documents by mail or email to one of the registration offices in Munich (find below a list).

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 
  • filled-out deregistration form (find it below this article under documents)

In case you are moving abroad, you will probably be asked about your follow-up address abroad. This is also important as the registration office will send your deregistration confirmation to your follow up address abroad if not indicated differently. You can also indicate that you would like to receive the deregistration confirmation at a friend’s address in Germany.

Families
Spouses, registered partners and family members can use one deregistration form for the shared apartment together. If there are more than four persons, an additional form must be used. One person’s signature is sufficient per form.

Once a local registration office in Munich receives all required documents and information via mail or email, the registration office will process your deregistration. This usually takes 3-4 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/ information 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 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.

At which registration office (Bürgeramt) can I request my deregistration in Munich?

registration offices in Munich

You can request your deregistration at the registration office of the city or municipality where you are registered as a primary residence. The easiest way to find your respective registration office is by looking at your registration confirmation.

If you are registered in Munich with your main residence, you can deregister at the registration office of your choice in all Munich, regardless of your district of residence. Here, you can also deregister your secondary residence, if it is located outside of Munich.

You already deregistered your residency in Munich but lost your deregistration confirmation and need a new one?

You can request a copy from your local registration office in Munich. The fee is 5,00€. If you come in person (bring your identity card or passport!), you will receive the duplicate immediately. Or you can send them an informal request by mail or fax. Then you will receive the duplicate sent to your current address.

How does COVID-19 affect the deregistration process in Munich?

Due to COVID-19 local registration offices in Munich require you to book an appointment in advance online here. If you would like to handle your deregistration in person, the necessary protective measures for both customers and employees must be observed (hygiene, space, mask). However, at the moment the registration offices prefer customers to use the possibility of handling their deregistration via mail.
