Information from the Register of Residents
Simple information from the register of residents
Third parties get information from the register of residents to a certain extent. You can get information about the
- first name and last name
- doctoral degree
of a precisely defined person. As a rule, we need four identifying characteristics of the person you are looking for (e.g. first name, last name, date of birth, last address, sex) to be able to give you information.
The fee is 7 euros per information request even if your information request is not successful.
