Consultation sessions by the Bureau for German Affairs

Most of our consultation sessions are being held in person again at the planned locations. This was not possible for a while due to covid restrictions. To find out which sessions are being held in person and which are still online, look in the table under ‘Dates and times’.

Consultation sessions as from January 2022

The consultation session in Bad Nieuweschans will be held every third Wednesday of the month. To make an appointment, call EDR (Eems Dollard Region) on: 0597 521818 

The rest of the consultation sessions are mostly being held at the planned locations again. If only a few people register for a session, it may still be held online. You can make an appointment by calling your Euregion:

Of course, you can also contact us directly. If you send your questions using our online contact form, we will reply by email or telephone.
