German word: Anmeldebestätigung

English translation: A document showing that a person has an officially registered address

You need a Wohnungsgeberbestätigung from your landlord in order to register an address in Germany. You don't get this document when living in an illegal sublet, a hotel or AirBnB flat. The Anmeldebestätigung is a document issued by the local Bürgeramt or Bezirksamt when registering (anmelden) a German address.
