I sent my documents in to your office by post: how do I know if they have arrived?

If you sent your documents by registered mail within Germany (The Embassy strongly encourages this) you should have a tracking number. The Deutsche Post offers the track and trace facility on its website which allows you to see if your envelope has been delivered to this office.

Please see the Deutsche Post website for more details.

Given the large amount of applications received, we would kindly ask applicants to use this facility in the first instance and refrain from calling the Embassy to enquire whether their documents have arrived.
