Welcome to Essen

The local immigration office reopened to the public on Monday, June 15th.

Due to the corona virus pandemic, comprehensive hygiene and protective measures have been taken to protect both employees and the general public.

Therefore, a visit is only possible with an appointment booked or sent in advance.

A visit is not possible without an appointment. Appointments cannot be booked on site.

Due to the structural conditions of the local immigration office in Schederhofstrasse, especially the very narrow corridors, the number of people in the building must be limited.

Access to the building or grounds is controlled accordingly, which is why there may be waiting times in front of the building. In order to further minimize the number of people in the building, appointments should be held on their own if possible or at most with one other person (e.g. interpreter).

We kindly ask you to make payments using the EC card if possible.

Furthermore, it is pointed out that due to the spatial situation in some parts of the building it is not possible to maintain a minimum distance and therefore wearing a nose and throat protection is necessary.

If necessary, this will also be issued on site.

We are working at high-pressure to search for structural alternatives to be able to receive more people personally under the current conditions.

First of all, all those who have to appear in person and whose affairs cannot be regulated by post should be able to visit the immigration office.

These appointments were already given months ago.
