What is the Anmeldebestätigung?

The Anmeldebestätigung or Meldebestätigung confirms that you registered your address in Germany. You get this document during your Anmeldung appointment. This document is often required to open a bank account, get a cellphone contract or apply for a residence permit. This document is often called the Meldebescheinigung, because both documents have the same purpose.
