Apply for identity card due to other name change

Service Description

If your name has changed, your identity card is invalid. Therefore, in this case you must apply for a new one
There is one exception: as long as you have a valid passport document, i.e. passport or temporary passport, with the new name, there is no obligation to apply for a new ID card.
The EU logo on the front of the ID card, which will be introduced from August 2, 2021, will not invalidate ID cards without this logo.
The validity period depends on your age at the time of application:

  • Under 24 years: Identity card is valid for 6 years.
  • 24 years and older: Identity card is valid for 10 years.

A temporary identity card is valid for a maximum of 3 months.
You can submit the application at your Bürgeramt at your main place of residence. Applications can be submitted to any other Bürgeramt if an important reason is presented. In this case, an incompetence surcharge is incurred, which means that the cost of issuance increases.
