  • Your passport
  • Most recent German local authority de-registration form (‘Abmeldebestätigung’ - only applicable, if the last place of residence was in Germany or if a German place of residence is shown in the passport
  • Recent proof of address in GB (e.g. council tax/ utility bill or bank statement)
  • A self-addressed Special Delivery envelope, pre-paid up to 500g (obtainable at any post office), if you wish the passport to be posted to you
