Child passport

  • General information
    The city of Wolfsburg informs - Children's passports will be abolished

    The legislator decided on 12.10.2023 that the children's passport will be abolished on 01.01.2024 . Children's passports will only be issued, extended or updated until 31.12.2023. The validity of children's passports that have already been issued remains unaffected.

    The abolition will avoid the enormous effort required by parents and the administration to regularly reapply for or renew a child's passport every year.

    Children of all ages need their own identity document when traveling. An identity card is sufficient for travel within the European Union, Norway, Iceland, Switzerland and Liechtenstein as well as for travel to Turkey. The travel and security information on the website of the Federal Foreign Office provides information on the required travel document. For travel outside the EU, a passport is generally required for the child.
