District Police Departments
Identity cards for minors – please note before applying Both a standard identity card or an identity card for a minor can be issued to an applicant who is a minor. These are two separate products, and only the standard identity card can be used as a travel document. The guardians' consent must be obtained to issue an identity card, whereas an identity card for a minor can also be applied for without the guardians' consent.
Identity cards as travel documents
An identity card as a travel document
An identity card can also be used as a travel document instead of a passport. Please note that a so-called identity card for a minor issued without the guardians' consent, an identity card issued to a foreigner or a temporary identity card are not valid as travel documents.
In the Nordic countries (Sweden, Norway, Denmark and Iceland) no travel documents are required; however, you must be able to reliably prove your identity when requested to do so.
PLEASE NOTE: If an identity card reported as missing or stolen is found, it can only be used as a travel document after the card holder has presented the card to the police and reported it as found.
