The child’s birth must be registered with the Standesamt (registry office) within one week. If the child is born in a hospital or other maternity clinic, the institution will register the birth.
The birth certificate should be issued within four weeks of the birth. In the case of a new-born child, the certificate will be issued at Magdeburg Registry Office; the child’s parents should both be in attendance. Depending on the mother’s marital status, the following documents must be submitted.

Single:

  • mother’s birth certificate and translation, with authentication if applicable
  • a valid passport, certificate of residency or personal ID card
  • certificates of naturalisation/ citizenship
  • change of name certificates
  • prenatal acknowledgment of paternity and joint custody declaration, if applicable 


Married:

  • valid passports, certificates of residency or personal ID cards
  • marriage certificate and translation, with authentication if applicable


Divorced:

  • mother’s birth certificate and translation, with authentication if applicable
  • a valid passport, certificate of residency or personal ID card
  • certificates of naturalisation/ citizenship
  • change of name certificates
  • marriage certificate with legally binding divorce decree
  • prenatal acknowledgment of paternity and custody declaration, if applicable
  • passport and birth certificate of the father acknowledging paternity

Parents who are not German citizens should make an appointment. In cases where at least one of the parents is a foreigner, this can be arranged by email (Standesamt@std.magdeburg.de) or by phoning 0391-540-4216.

The registry office will send an electronic notification to the Aliens’ Authority. Once the parents have received a certificate of registration from the registry office, they must present it to the Foreigners’ Authority.

Elterngeld (maternity/ paternity pay) can be applied for after the birth of a child in Germany; it is intended to give parents time to attend to their responsibilities, and helps make up for the loss of income after the birth of a child. It is paid to mothers and fathers for a maximum of 14 months. They can split this period of time between them as they prefer. Contact details
