Applicants from the Greater Ottawa Region (National Capital Region of Ottawa and the surrounding counties (administrative units) of Lanark; Leeds and Grenville; Prescott and Russell; Renfrew; Stormont, Dundas and Glengarry) will now have the opportunity to apply for the following types of passports during weekly passport service days at the embassy in Ottawa:
1) Biometric passports, provided that the last passport expired less than 5 years ago and there have been no changes in citizenship or name in the meantime
2) Temporary passports (repeat applications only) upon proof of an urgent reason to travel within the next 5 weeks
2) Children's passports (repeat applications only)
First-time passport applications can only be accepted where a certificate of German nationality, a certificate of naturalization, or a German birth certificate can be presented.
In all other cases (e.g., if your passport has been expired for more than 5 years; if you are applying for the first time for a minor child; or if you want to apply for a new passport after changing your name in connection with a marriage), you must submit your passport application to the Consulate General Toronto, which is still responsible for passport matters.
To book your appointment at the German Embassy in Ottawa, please call (613) 232-1101.
