Depending on where they resided in Germany, most applying for such permits had to appear before a "Gemeinderat" (local council) or "Oberamt" (county administration) or "Bezirksamt" (county office), etc., to declare their intentions, and allow the legal investigations, as necessary, to begin. Often other government or controlling agencies would often be solicited or referred to. All creditors of the emigrant might be summoned to appear at some point. An announcement of the emigration was generally ordered in the local public paper and community bulletin board. Sometimes these proceedings could take a month or two to complete. There would be little reason or incentive, after such procedures ran their course, for the emigrant (or emigrant family) to procrastinate embarking.
If you get additional details from the Hannover Archives Center per Barb's suggestion, perhaps you could post it for the list.

Several weeks ago I asked this question but got no response Maybe I will this time around. In the middle 1800's if a native of Hannover appled for a request to emigrate to America, was there a time limit that such authorization was limited to? ie, could someone after getting such authorization emigrate 10 years after the original dated document?
