Children's passport issuance

The issuance of a children's passport must be applied for and is valid for children up to the age of 12. No biometric data is collected when applying.

Depending on the destination country, a passport with biometric data may be required. In this case, the child must apply for an electronic passport (ePassport) for minors (see Passport issuance for minors for the first time).

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

Who should I contact?
