Authentication of identity documents

Due to the current situation, please refer to the Information on the Citizen's Office home page.

Notarization certifies that the copy is identical in content to the original document. However, notarization does not certify the authenticity or validity of the original.

This service is offered exclusively under municipal jurisdiction. Your request can therefore only be processed if you have your main residence in Bremen.

The authentication of these documents is for a specific purpose. In case of doubt, it will be checked whether a certification can be carried out according to the relevant regulations.

The following documents may be authenticated for the purpose of presentation to German offices or authorities:

  • ID cards
  • Passports ( no visas from USA)

What documents do I need?

  • Presentation of the original document
    • Copies are always made on site. Copies brought along will not be accepted.
