Death of Germans without domestic residence abroad

A death that has occurred abroad can also be registered in a German death register, i.e. registered, at your request. The so-called post-registration also applies to Germans who died abroad who did not reside in Germany.

With the post-assessment, an entry in a German death register is made in addition to the registration abroad, i.e. in addition to the entry in the death register of the country in which the death occurs.

You can apply for post-registration with the competent German registry office under certain conditions.
