Appointments to apply for a German passport or national ID card

Please only book one appointment per person in the name of the applicant. Multiple bookings will be deleted without prior notice. After you have booked an appointment, you will receive a confirmation by email. Please wait for the email and do not book another appointment. One appointment is good to apply for both passport and ID card.

I have read the information for application of a German passport / national ID-card and I am aware that I may need to book another appointment if my application is either incomplete or necessary supporting documents are not provided. 


1. No collection of passports and/or ID cards
Once processing has been completed we will forward your passport or ID cards to you with Royal Mail’s registered “Special Delivery” service. It is therefore important that you provide us - at the time of application - with a self-addressed and pre-paid "Royal Mail Special Delivery” envelope.

2. No cash payments of fees
Payments can only be made by Credit Card or Debit Card (MasterCard and Visa only). American Express, Diners and Maestro cards as well as digital wallet or mobile payments including Apple Pay or Google Pay are not accepted. You must have the actual card with you. The named card holder must be present to sign the debit voucher. 

Should you require additional information please contact us using our contact form. Please understand that we are currently responding to a large volume of enquiries.

Thank you for your understanding.
