Important Information:

On November 1, 2015, a new Resident Registration Act becomes effective in
Germany: From then on, everybody needs a confirmation of the landlord/provider of housing space ("Wohnungsgeberbestätigung") in order to register the apartment in the city of Augsburg.

The provider of housing space is either your landlord, a person mandated by your landlord or the main tenant if you are a subtenant.
 
Please bring along your passport and the filled confirmation
