Apply for a passport expressly

Description

With a passport, you can identify yourself when traveling to other countries. If you urgently need your passport, you can apply for it in an express procedure at a citizens' office. Then your new passport will be ready faster. You have to pay more for this.
The normal passport has 32 pages. If you travel a lot, you can apply for a passport with 48 pages. Both variants can be applied for in the express procedure.

You can apply for your passport in the express procedure at your citizens' office at your main residence. Applications to any other Citizens' Office are possible if an important reason is explained; there is an incompetence surcharge.
 

You can only apply for an express passport on site at the Bürgeramt. Only you can do that personally. The application is completed by the official staff. All you have to do is sign. When applying, fingerprints will be taken from you for storage in the chip of the passport (usually flat imprint of the left and right index fingers).
The passport is produced by Bundesdruckerei GmbH and sent to the authorities. You can then pick up the passport at the authority.

Contact the Citizens' Office of your municipality or city.
