Transfer of a permanent settlement permit or an EU long-term residence permit to a new passport

  • If you have a new passport, you can have your permanent residence title transferred to the new passport.
  • In general, the residence title is inserted as a sticker in your new passport, even when your residence title was issued as an eAT.
  • Electronic residence titles can at the moment only be issued in exceptional circumstances.
If you want to travel abroad before the residence title has been transferred
If no appointments are available at short notice, it is possible to start a trip abroad even without a transfer, if you have your old passport and your residence title. You will be able to return to Germany without any problems, if you take your new passport and the old passport with you.
However, it is recommended that you check the entry and exit conditions of the host country before traveling abroad (e.g. at the consular authority of the host country).

Prerequisites

  • Transfer in a Bürgeramt
    You can generally have the transfer carried out at any Berlin Citizens Registration Office (Bürgeramt), as long as the following requirements are met:
