Passports / Identity Cards for FAMILIES (at least 2 applicants)

Further information:

→ These appointments are made for families applying for documents of several (at least two) family members. Please do not book a family appointment if only one person wants to apply at all. Appointments for one person only will be cancelled without advance advice.

→ This is a passport appointment only. Applicants applying for anything other than a passport or ID card (e.g. name declaration, registration of birth or marriage, visa etc.) will not be accepted.

→ Before you book an appointment: Make sure you do have all required documents so that your application is ready to be filed. If you are not sure or have further questions, please contact the passport section before booking.

→ Incomplete applications cannot be processed.

  • Applications requiring a German name declaration are also incomplete until the final decision has been made by the responsible German registrar’s office.
  • Green Cards without expiration date will not be accepted. Without an alternative document or new Green Card, the application is considered incomplete (= no processing).

→ You only have to bring originals or certified copies. They will be returned at the end of your appointment.

→ Payment can be done cash in USD or by credit or debit card (Visa or MasterCard only) in EUR. Payments by card are always processed in Euros, therefore make sure your card is activated for payments in Germany.

→ You also can apply for a German ID card at the consulate general. Please follow the information on our website

→ In case of multiple bookings for the same family, all of your reservations will be cancelled without prior notice. To prevent abuse of the appointments system, the consulate general reserves the right to exclude applicants who booked more appointments than necessary or did not appear for their appointment from making further bookings.

→ Depending on the demand, appointments might not be available. In this case, please try to book an appointment the next day again. New appointments will be available regularly.

→ All dates are shown in format DD.MM.YYYY.
