Dear @Ibezim,

Welcome to the Wefugees Community and thank you for your question!

As German citizen planning to marry abroad, you can apply for the certificate of no impediment ("Ehefähigkeitszeugnis") in the registry office ("Standesamt"), which is responsible for the area of your current or last official address in Germany. You can also apply in a written form. If you have never been registered in Germany, one certain Standesamt in Berlin is responsible.

Please see this website for details and the required documents.

I hope this helps.

All the best,
