Which identification document: passport or identity card?

You usually need a valid identity card or passport to travel within the European Union. However, if you want to travel outside the European Union, you will always need a valid passport.

Some countries outside the EU have special requirements, such as the need for a visa or vaccination. It is therefore always advisable to find out in advance about the entry requirements of the respective country in order to determine which documents are required.

In any case, you should make sure that your identity document is valid for at least six months after the planned date of travel , as some countries have this requirement.

Identification document for children

Children also need a valid identification document for travel, especially when traveling abroad. As a rule, a child’s ID card or passport is sufficient for travel within the European Union.

However, if you are travelling outside the European Union, your child will always need their own valid passport.
