Apply for a temporary identity card

With the temporary identity card, for example, you can bridge the time until a regular identity card is issued.

Your temporary identity card is valid for a maximum of 3 months.

You must return the old temporary or regular identity card when you are given the new temporary identity card.

You can submit the application to your citizens' office at your main residence. If you apply for the temporary identity card at another citizens' office, you need an important reason. Please clarify the recognition of your reason in advance with the authority you have chosen, for example by telephone. A non-jurisdiction surcharge of EUR 13.00 applies.
