Information evening about applying for German Citizenship

The Ausländerbeirat in Oberursel is organising an information evening about the subject of applying for German Citizenship, which will be held in the town hall (Rathaus) on Tuesday, 15th November, 2016 at 6pm.

Thomas Krämer, who works for the Regierungspräsidium in Darmstadt – the part of local Government who ultimately decides on whether citizenship will be awarded on not – will be visiting to talk on the subject and answer questions.

A number of British Citizens in the area are already applying for dual citizenship while this option is still available to them, and this will be covered in the course of the evening as well.

Anyone who would like to submit a question in advance should do so by writing an e-mail to auslaenderbeirat@oberursel.de or calling 06171 502-174 by Monday, 31st October.
