Links of interest
The Internet can prove invaluable when it comes to finding the much-needed information you are looking for. Many U.S. Government agencies, German public authorities, and public offices now have informative websites you can utilize.
Please note: Not all online offers are trustworthy. While searching on the internet beware that some websites may contain misinformation. A right assessment is key in finding the correct information you are looking for.
Check who is responsible for a website by looking for the “Impressum” link (on English pages of German websites you often see Imprint or Legal notice). Websites published in Germany are legally required to have an Impressum, so if you are suspicious about a website and it does not provide this information, it is best not trusting it.
On the other hand, websites provided by government agencies, authorities and offices are particularly trustworthy. Below, we have compiled a list of websites you can access without worries:
