Passports and ID Cards
German passports and ID cards are produced centrally by the Federal Printing Office (Bundesdruckerei) in Berlin and sent by diplomatic pouch to the missions abroad. Hence, it takes a few weeks until your passport/ ID card can be handed over to you. Therefore, we recommend to apply for the passport/ ID card in due time.
In Pakistan, the Consulate General in Karachi accepts passport applications for the inhabitants of the Sindh and Balochistan provinces. The Embassy in Islamabad is in charge for all other provinces and areas in Pakistan. As a matter of principle, passports need to be applied for in person and in writing.
