Citizenship test - Naturalisation

Citizenship test


Citizenship test "Politic": If you live permanently in Germany, you can become a German citizen under certain conditions. Naturalisation does not take place automatically. You must submit an application for Naturalisation, which is then, depending on the circumstances, granted or not.

In order to apply, you must be at least 16 years old. If you have not yet reached the age of 16, the parents must submit the application. You can obtain the appropriate application forms from your municipal aliens department, the Youth Migration Services (JMD), the Migration Counselling Service for Adult Immigrants (MBE) or your municipal or district administration.


Naturalisation costs € 255 per person. Underage children who are naturalised together with their parents have to pay 51 €.


In order for you to be naturalised successfully, you must fulfil numerous requirements. This also includes the successful completion of an integration course and thus sufficient knowledge of the German language. A further requirement is that you have passed the naturalisation test. With this test you prove that you know the legal and social order as well as the living conditions in Germany. Further requirements can be found on the homepage of the BAMF.
