Registration path for decentralized entrants

Registration path for decentralized entrants

People from Ukraine are currently coming to Waldeck-Frankenberg in different ways - on their own or through official agencies. If they come to the district on their own and stay here with friends or acquaintances, for example, there are a few points to consider when entering the country in order to register and receive support.

Friends and acquaintances of refugees or volunteers are asked to support and accompany those seeking protection in the registration process. Thank you very much!


Registration steps at a glance

To enroll in Waldeck-Frankenberg and apply for assistance benefits, the following steps apply:


1. registration with the cities and municipalities

Refugees should first register in the respective city or municipality where they are accommodated. The following documents/information are necessary for this:

  • Date of entry
  • Passport documents (passport, (domestic) identity card, ID card)

Here they will also be given the form to apply for a residence permit. Although the application is issued by the cities and municipalities, it must be submitted to the district.


2. application for a residence permit and identification at the district office

In order to submit an application for a residence permit, a personal appointment must be made with the Aliens Department by calling 05631 - 954 351 or by e-mail: auslaenderwesen@lkwafkb.de . In this context, the applicants will first be registered for identification purposes. This means that biometric and personal data are registered and compared with a nationwide register in order to avoid duplicate applications. They are then initially issued a temporary residence permit (fictitious certificate). This is the central prerequisite for applying for support benefits in Germany.


3. application for support services at the Jobcenter Waldeck-Frankenberg

After receiving the fictitious certificate, protection seekers can apply for support services at the Waldeck-Frankenberg Job Center in person and with the help of a translator or through an online application. If one decides to use the digital option, one will receive the corresponding access data for registration during a counseling interview. The job center recommends submitting applications online if possible, as this can be done around the clock. In addition, no further personal visit is necessary via the online procedure.

Note: As of June 1, 2022, protection seekers no longer have to apply for support benefits at the Waldeck-Frankenberg District, but at the Waldeck-Frankenberg Job Center. The reason for the change is a new federal law: Protection seekers from Ukraine will then no longer receive their benefits under the Asylum Seekers' Benefits Act, but under the Social Code. This regulates, among other things, financial support for job seekers and is legally the responsibility of the job center.
