Your child needs a travel document when traveling abroad. There are a number of ways that children can do this.
This can be a children's passport, an identity card or, depending on the destination country, a regular passport.
You can apply for a new children's passport if the validity of an old children's passport has expired, your child's children's passport has been stolen or lost, your child's name has changed or if entries - apart from information on place of residence or height - are incorrect or miss.

You can use this service at any Hamburg customer center, regardless of where you live in Hamburg.

  • Biometric passport photo: The photo is mandatory

In addition, you must provide the following:
  • In the case of joint custody of cohabiting parents
    • ID of the present legal guardians
    • custody order, if applicable
    • Declaration of consent with a copy of the identity card of the absent guardian
    • The issuance of a passport for unmarried parents of a minor child requires the application of both parents if they have joint parental responsibility and the parents live together.
  • If parents (married, divorced, unmarried) who have joint parental responsibility are not just temporarily separated, only the parent with whom the unmarried minor child usually resides may apply for the passport.
  • If there is only one legal guardian:
    • ID of the guardian present

Please note

  • The presence of a guardian/legal representative at the appointment is sufficient.
  • In the case of permanently separated parents, only the parent with whom the child is registered as the sole or main residence may apply for the child passport
  • If the children's passport is presented to a passport authority at another location in Germany or abroad, the fee (surcharge) increases.
