FAQs airport ID card

The following documents must be submitted in order to apply for an airport ID card:

  • Request for an airport ID card,
  • Request for background check,
  • Copy of European identity card (front and back) or passport (incl. current registration certificate, not older than 4 weeks),
  • Certificate of good conduct from the country of origin translated for foreign citizens and declaration of impunity abroad.

Requests for background checks must be:

  • completed legibly and in full,
  • signed and stamped by the applicant, as well as their employer.
  • submitted to the registration office.

Duration of initial request - request for background check - the check is carried out by the relevant aviation authority and usually takes four to six weeks.

Please notice that it is your sole responsibilitiy to request an extension for your badge.


  • a new airport ID card must be requested at least three month before the old one expires,
  • a new reliability check must be requested,
  • Aviation Security Training is to be renewed.

Duration of follow-up request - in case of a valid background check certificate, the wait is likely to reduce. 

The expiry date of the airport ID card can be found on your airport ID card (VALID THROU/GÜLTIG BIS).

Permanent access to the security areas requires a valid background check according to §7 Aviation Security Act. The authority checks the applicant and, if applicable, confirms his/her reliability. Doubts may arise from past convictions or ongoing criminal proceedings, for example:

  • Daily rates
  • Enquiry by registration office

A positive background check is limited to five years. Flughafen Hannover - Langenhagen GmbH has no possibility to influence the decision on the reliability of the persons inspected by the aviation security authority.

An already existing background check of another federal state can be submitted and recognised when the application is submitted. Recognition requires the approval of the relevant aviation authority.

No airport identification card can be issued without a positive background check. If the reliability has been rejected by the relevant aviation authority, a new request can be made one year after the last verification result is announced at the earliest. The reasons for the negative decision will only be communicated to the applicant. If the applicant can prove that the reasons for the negative decision have in the meantime ceased to apply, a new examination may be requested at an earlier point in time.

Every holder of an airport ID card is obliged to return the card or have it changed at the registration offen immediately in the event of a change of company, termination of employment or change of name. Personal data, such as a change of address, must be reported immediately by the card holder directly to the aviation authority in charge. The identity card remains the property of Flughafen Hannover - Langenhagen GmbH. Please note that a late return or not returning the airport ID card will be subject to a fine of up to €10,000 according to the Aviation Security Act.

The loss of the badge must be reported immediately to the registration office or, outside business hours, to the Corporate Security Center on +49 (0)511 977-1222.
