Passport issuance for adults for the first time
The first issuance of a passport must be applied for at the competent authority. When issued for minors for the first time , special conditions must be observed.
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.
