The Philippine Consulate General in Frankfurt performs civil registry services. We register the births, marriages celebrated in, and deaths of Filipino citizens in the German states under the Consulate’s jurisdiction: Hesse, North Rhine-Westphalia, Thuringia, Baden-Württemburg, Rhineland-Palatinate, Saarland, and Bavaria.

WHAT IS CIVIL REGISTRATION?

Civil registration is a continuous, permanent and compulsory recording of vital events occurring in the life of an individual such as birth, marriage, and death, as well as court decrees and legal instruments affecting his civil status in appropriate registers as mandated by Act No. 3753, the Civil Registry Law.

WHAT ARE THE USES OF CIVIL REGISTRY DOCUMENTS?

These establish the occurrence of birth, death, or marriage and therefore provide prima facie evidence of facts surrounding these events. Records are important in legal and personal transactions, applying for jobs, obtaining passports for travel, entrance to school, claiming insurance benefits, and others.
