Apply for a temporary passport


A provisional machine-readable passport is only issued if the time is too short even for the issuance of an express passport (production time within 72 hours on weekdays) and it can no longer be handed over in time for the first use. The urgency must be demonstrated on the basis of the own documents. The validity is limited to a maximum period of 12 months.

You must make a personal representation to apply for your passport (e-passport). The application will be completed on site with the processor. All you have to do is sign.

The personal preliminary speech is indispensable because of the signature on the application form and the identity check. The identity can be proven by an official photo ID. This is usually the identity card or the previous passport.

On the other hand, the passport can also be collected by a written agent who must identify himself.

The responsibility lies with the municipality and the city in which your main residence is located.
