German Passports

We are only able to offer a limited number of appointments, new appointments are being released daily 14 days in advance. If you do not see any available appointment, all appointments for the next 14 days have already been booked. Please check in again later in the day or on another day, for newly released appointments.

Before applying for a passport, please ensure that you do not have to do a name declaration before.

A name declaration will most likely be necessary, if:

- the applicant was born abroad within wedlock but his/her/their parents did not have the same name
- the applicant got married abroad and changed his/her/their name but never registered the marriage in Germany

Please note that these are just examples. For more information on when name declarations are necessary and how to submit them please see our website. If a name declaration turns out to be necessary, we cannot accept passport applications until the German registrar has confirmed the name/name change. You can submit name declarations in person to the Consulate General (only after booking an appointment via our website) or send it by mail.
Due to technical issues, we are currently unable to process applications for German ID cards.

Please continue with booking an appointment only if you are sure, that you do not need to make a name declaration.
