The following webpages contain only the most important information about German passports and are meant for the very few German citizens who do not speak German. Please check the German version of this webpage for complete information about German passports.

General information

The German Embassy Kampala issue passports to German citizens residing in Uganda.

For children under the age of 12 with German citizenship, a child’s passport may also be issued instead of a regular passport.

A new passport law has been in effect since Nov. 1, 2007. Under this new law, fingerprints also must be stored on a chip contained in German passports. This affects all passport applicants six years and older.

It is therefore absolutely necessary that you personally apply for the passport.
