Were you born after 31/12/1999 geboren?
Were you born abroad (not in Germany)?
Are you expecting a child which will also be born abroad (not in Germany)?
If you can affirm all the questions above, then you need to be aware of the following:
You must apply for the birth to be registered in the register of births at the competent German registry office before your child's first birthday. The deadline is deemed to have been met if the application is received by the competent German mission abroad within the one-year period.
If you fail to do that, then your child will not acquire German nationality through birth if it already has got another nationality.
