Identity card report due to recovery

Service Description

As a German citizen, you are required to have an identity card from the age of 16.

If you lose your identity card or temporary identity card, you are obliged to inform the identity card authority of your (place of residence) municipality immediately. An identity check is required there.

The identity card authority must also be notified of any retrieval and the previously lost identity card must be presented. Since a new document is usually issued, this is essential, also to prevent problems when using these identity documents.

Only when you have officially reported your identity card as "found", a corresponding entry at the police will be deleted. After that, you can continue to use your recovered ID card in Germany without restriction until the end of its validity.
