If you live in Hong Kong and require a certificate of good conduct / certificate of no criminal conviction from the German Government, you may apply for it online – if you have a new German ID card with online functions. If you do not have that card, you may apply for the certificate via post at the German Federal Office of Justice in Bonn.

To do so, you need to have your identity and signature verified by the Consulate General in Hong Kong. Please make an appointment online for the signature verification.
