1. Date of the registration
2. Move-in date
3. Your new registered address
4. Housing status - single flat*
5. Last name
6. First Name**
7. Birth date
Tip: Names, calendar date format and geographical names should be entered exactly as they are written in your passport!
The registration procedure is free of charge.See these (and other) steps in the page with TO-DO Lists .
In any case, I recommend carrying to the bureaucrats every thinkable and imaginable documents: passports of all the persons involved, marriage certificate and so on. In 99% of cases these "just in case" documents will be not required, but when suddenly you need an unforeseen document and you have it with you occasionally... then you might enjoy a small triumph, because you just saved a lot of valuable time! ))
* - unless it's the only apartment you're renting.
Other options: main flat (Hauptwohnung), secondary flat (Nebenwohnung);
** - eventually extended to double first name (Hemant-Ravindra) or first name + the parename (e.g. Ivan Petrovichth);
*** - according to German law, the term "family" includes only the spouse and minor children. No brothers, no parents;
**** - the registration office can have different names according to the federal state (Meldebehörde, Bürgeramt, KVR etc.).
