Request information block in the population register


A block on information in the population register is only entered under strict conditions.

To do this, you must show that you or another person could be endangered in terms of life, health, personal freedom or similar interests worthy of protection as a result of information from the population register.

  • In order to have your information blocked, you must provide the local registration office with good reason to believe that you or other persons are in danger.
  • A check of your information must confirm the danger you cite.

The information block ends after 2 years and can be extended upon request.

the registration office of your place of residence

It is recommended that you contact the responsible office before applying and find out whether a block can be considered in your case.

The information block will be entered upon application. When submitting the application, you must state the facts and provide credible evidence as to why you may be at risk to life, health, personal freedom or similar interests worthy of protection if information is provided. The request can be made in writing or in person by visiting the authority.

Your information will then be checked by the competent authority. If this check shows that the relevant requirements are met, a block on the provision of information will be noted in the civil register for 2 years, which applies to all types of civil register information to private individuals and non-public bodies.

The block only applies to the dwelling for which it was requested.

You can have the information block extended after the time has expired.
