Apply now for your passport renewal at the Embassy in Ottawa.
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 renew passports during weekly passport service days at the embassy in Ottawa. 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.
