Service Description

As part of a Europe-wide network, the points of single contact give you easy access to administrations and authorities.
The points of single contact will help you

  • if you want to do business in Germany or
  • if you want to have your professional qualifications formally recognised.

The single points of contact will inform you about:

  • application procedures and required documents,
  • competent authorities,
  • costs and
  • duration of the administrative procedure.

The points of single contact will also take care of the complete electronic processing of administrative procedures for you. They receive your application and forward it to the responsible authorities. This saves you having to go through the authorities.
The network of points of single contact consists of internet portals and personal contacts.

Note:
If you want to carry out business or professional activities in another country of the European Union (EU), you can find the appropriate point of single contact on the website of the EU Commission.
