Depending on seasonally high demands (e.g. before or during holiday season or before public holidays), dates may already be booked out.

You may apply for a new passport and ID-card up to six months before your currend document expires.


If you wish to apply for a name other than the one you used in your last passport or ID-card, a name declaration may be required. Typical cases are:

  • Birth of a child of parents without a common married name
  • Marriages abroad in countries that do not have a name law comparable to German law (e.g. USA, Asia, Africa, parts of Eastern Europe etc.)
  • Re-acceptance of the birth name after beeing divorced
  • Leading of a companion name (double name)

Detailed information about name declarations can be found at However, the infomartion on our website is available only in German since it is inteded for German nationals only. If you have any questions, please contact the Consulate by using our contact form.
