Current state of Postident with foreign passports (2017)

49 posts in this topic

I was very confused about it. 
Just experienced this the last 2 years. I thought it's just the usual discrimination/racism issue. Which it kinda is.  
I'll try to get a passport with a chip when I renew mine. 
This is bullshit.

Just out of curiosity, I tried to use the Postident app using my eAT. It works for congstar. But doesn't work for bank-related stuffs. 
In person, nothing works, they told me to try the video chat actually. 
As suggested above, probably need to go to a larger post office and even then probably depends on the mood of the employee.

A friend of mine successfully did it in Berlin (some central branch) for a bank. I think video chat might actually work (now that you can use the eAT). If you make noise on social media (like Twitter) hinting it's discrimination (which it is) they might help you out.

I guess I forgot to mention it. 
But video chat Postident through the app didn't work. They just referred me back to Postident at a physical office. 
The video chat for N26 also didn't work despite their website claiming my passport is accepted. Not sure if they used WebID, IDnow or something else.

Does anyone know a post shop in Munich where they accepted a UK passport for postident? 

Thanks in advance
