If you want to apply for a new passport in most citizens’ offices today, you have to go there, wait and submit a paper application.” In the current “Digital Economy and Society Index” of the EU, Germany ranks 26th out of 28th in e-government. “Only Italy and Greece have less digital authorities,” said Dünn.
