Passport issuance provisionally
A temporary machine-readable passport will only be issued if the time itself is too short for the issuance of an express passport(production time max. 72 hours) and it can no longer be handed over in time before the first use.
The applicant must present himself in person to apply for the passport (e-passport). The application is completed on site with the processor. All the applicant has to do is sign.
The personal visit is indispensable because of the handwritten signature on the application form and the identity verification. 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 picked up by a written representative who must identify himself.
