Applying for a passport abroad


If you have German citizenship and live abroad, you can apply for your passport at the German diplomatic mission responsible for you (embassy or consulate). In principle, you must apply for the passport in person.

If you have lost your passport or it has been stolen, the diplomatic mission can issue you with a travel document to return to Germany. These papers are issued for the duration of the intended trip, but not more than one month. They only entitle you to return to Germany, but not to continue your journey to other countries. In the event of a loss of your passport, please contact the nearest diplomatic mission.
