Passport issue new due to change of other data Unfortunately this specification of service has not yet been completely translated.

In addition to changing the surname, a new passport must be issued if the following data is changed:

  • Name
  • Date of birth
  • Place of birth

The issuance of a new passport is only necessary if the passport is still used.

The passport cannot be taken immediately after the application has been submitted, as it is manufactured at the Bundesdruckerei in Berlin. If the passport is required earlier, an express passport can be requested.
