LATE RESETTLERS

Help in filling in the Antrag of the late resettler for permanent residence in Germany

Antrag is an application stating the reasons for the applicant and his family to move to Germany. It is important to prepare this document correctly and in its entirety.
Filling in the late resettler Antrag
In order to prove the compliance of your data with the requirements for late resettlers, you must provide a full set of documents and submit the application correctly to the Federal Office of Administration of Germany. First of all, it is necessary to understand how to fill in the application form.
Rules
Antrag S is a detailed application on 16 pages with information about the applicant, his German ancestors and relatives planning to move. Filling in the Antrag S to Germany is one of the key stages without which a positive decision to accept the applicant as a late resettler is impossible. If the documents are collected on non-German language-speaking side, the application will be considered by German officials, communication with whom is difficult due to remoteness, language barrier and legislative differences. The general rules for filling in the Antrag are following:

  • boxes and answers are to be filled in German;
  • use of printed letters to avoid misunderstandings;
  • no blank fields are left: even if exact data is not available, it should be marked accordingly;
  • the German authorities accept and process applications free of charge for the applicant.

  1. Administrative wording is used in the formulations, simple translation does not provide an understanding of the details.
  2. The recommendations of the civil registry offices and the user advice on the forums may not meet the current requirements of the German services.
  3. The Consulate leaflet doesn't offer much clarification and is contradictory in details.
  4. Any errors or inaccuracies may be perceived as intentional attempts to mislead and will cause delays in the proceedings.

There are a lot of people from the countries of the former socialist block, which are called Russlanddeutsche, that is, Russian Germans. The government provides ethnic Germans not only with resettlement to Germany as late resettlers, but also with social support for new community members. The program provides for the acquisition of German citizenship without the process of naturalization and the renunciation of previous citizenship.

If the resettler's status is approved, the resettler can choose to live in one of the 16 federal states. Each of the states has its own culture and even school holidays are distributed at different times. It is not always 100% possible to fulfill your wishes, but the fact that relatives live in a certain city or are planning to study or work will be an additional factor in your favor.
Specifics of moving in different years
Later resettlement to Germany from the post-soviet countries began in 1993. Until the mid-1990s, the largest outflow of Germans and their descendants from the former Soviet Union was recorded. Each year, Germany welcomed about 200,000 people whose ancestors faced repression, forced displacement and national prejudice.

Until 2009 the repatriates were obliged to live on the territory allocated to them by quota for 3 years. The restrictions have now been loosened: if a resettler finds a job in another district, he or she may change his or her place of residence.

Since 2013, the law governing later resettlement in Germany has been amended so as to ease the restrictions:

  • there is no need from now on to prove that the origins of German culture were derived from the family;
  • the documents do not have to include German ethnicity;
  • family members of the repatriate can obtain retrospective approval.
As a result, the number of resettlers has increased again and reaches 5-7 thousand people per year. Since 2014, the unstable political situation in Ukraine and the Crimea has been accelerating late resettlement to Germany from these regions.

In addition, it is possible to reconsider the case if it has already been rejected. This gives ethnic Germans a chance to try their luck in their ancestral homeland again.
