Passport issue for minors for the first time

The application of minors must be approved in writing by both parents (as long as they exercise joint custody). In the case of unmarried or divorced parents, consent may be given by the parent to whom the Family Court has delegated sole parental custody of the child. The decision of the Family Court must be submitted at the time of application.

Furthermore, in the case of minors, one parent at the time of the application, the other parent signs at the time of collection.

From the age of 7, fingerprints must be taken to issue a passport to minors. This is not necessary until the age of 6.

There is a special provision for entry into the United States. For each child, the fingerprints must also be included in the child's passport up to the age of 6. In addition, an entry permit (ESTA) must be obtained.

Process flow

The applicant must present the application for a passport (e-passport) in person. The application is completed on site with the processor. The applicant only has to sign.

The personal consultation is indispensable because of the handwritten signature on the application form and the identity verification. The identity can be proved by an official photo ID. This is usually the identity card.

From the age of 10, the child's signature must be on the passport.

The passport can also be collected by a written representative who must identify himself.

Who should I contact?

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