If you intend to apply for a German passport for the first time for yourself or for your child and if you do not have a German birth certificate, please do not book an appointment through this category, but rather through the category “Citizenship and Family Matters”.

Incomplete applications cannot be accepted: the application will be returned at no cost and a new appointment has to be scheduled.
Depending on seasonal demand appointments may be fully booked quickly and have to be scheduled far in advance. Experience shows that this occurs in the months of May until September and before national holidays.
In order to commence your travel on time, please apply for your passport preferably at an early stage: you can submit your passport application up to six months before your current passport expires.
Do you have questions in regards to matters of citizenship?
Do you intend to register your child in the German birth registry and obtain a German birth certificate?
Do you want to submit a name declaration?
Do you want to register your marriage which took place abroad in the German marriage registry or do you want to have your foreign divorce decree recognized for German purposes?
Do you require help with the death of a relative or with questions in regards to inheritance matters?
