Have your identity card updated

Your data in the identity card must always be up-to-date. You can apply for a new one at your identity card office at your main residence. This is usually the Bürgeramt.

You can also submit the application to any other identity card authority if you can provide an important reason. Please clarify the recognition of your reason in advance with the authority of your choosing. There is a non-jurisdiction surcharge. That means you have to pay more for your new ID card.

In the event of a change of address, a new identity card is not required, but you must still present it to the Bürgeramt at your main residence. The authority notes the new address on a sticker on the back of the card. In addition, she changes the address in the chip of the ID card.
