The Legal and Consular Section assists German nationals in all legal matters such as passport applications, public notarizations or legalization of documents. Whether you need a signature certified, need to apply for German birth or marriage certificates or have questions concerning inheritage or citizenship, the Consular Section is here for you. The Consular Section also provides legal aid to German citizens in need, offers consular assistance to detainees and arranges repatriations.

Furthermore, the Consular Section is the contact point for Senegalese, Gambian or other nationals who intend to travel to Germany and thus need a visa.
