Registration in Halle


Everybody who will live in Halle for more than three months is required by law to register as a new resident in the citizen service office of the City of Halle upon arriving in Halle. Registration is especially important for those of you who need an electronic residence permit, as registration with the city of Halle is a prerequisite.


You must register personally within 14 days of obtaining permanent accommodation (flat, room in a shared flat, etc.). If you are living in a hotel/guest house for the first few days, the 14-day period only  counts from the time of obtaining permanent accommodation. If you are  living in a guest house and obtain a rental agreement there, this also  counts as permanent accommodation.

Appointment at the Citizens' Service Centre

A visit to the Citizens' Service Centre "Marktplatz 1" is only possible by prior appointment. You can use the following option to make an appointment:

  • online   
  • by telephone on 0345 - 22 10 (speed dial 115 if you are calling from Halle via the fixed network)

You will need the following documents to confirm your registration:
