The electronic list (ELEFAND: Electronic Registration of Germans Abroad) replaces the previously manually maintained lists of German diplomatic missions. We therefore ask you to register electronically via the Internet, even if you may have already been entered in the manual list of the German diplomatic mission abroad.
In future, you will automatically be asked to confirm or update your information at regular intervals. This is to ensure completeness and currentness of registrations. Please respond to the calls automatically sent to you in your own interest.
