German ID card
German ID cards can only be applied for in person at the Embassy or at a Consulate General, after scheduling an appointment. Applicants under 16 years of age must be accompanied by both parents or their guardian(s). Please bring the application form and all required supporting documentation to the appointment.
Please note as a general rule that a German ID card is not a sufficient travel document outside of the EU. It is, therefore, highly recommened to also be in possession of a valid German passport.
