Register prostitution activity for the first time

Since the entry into force of the Prostitute Protection Act on 1 July 2017, binding regulations for the practice of prostitution have applied nationwide. Anyone who pursues prostitution in Germany is obliged to register with the authorities and to seek health advice in advance.

The obligation to register and provide advice applies without exception to all people who provide sexual services for remuneration. Health advice and registration must be provided in person.

A certificate will be issued for the registration. This is valid nationwide.

Persons between the ages of 18 and 21 must have their registration certificate renewed after one year. For persons older than 21 years, the following applies: The registration must be renewed after two years.
