Save time by registering your passport data yourself

Lufthansa is bound by law to register the passport information of every passenger on flights to the USA, Canada, Korea, India, Japan, China, South Africa and Mexico. For these and other destinations you can easily register your data yourself at the Check-in machines, thus avoiding the sometimes lengthy registration procedure at the departure gate.


How to register your data

During the check-in process you will be asked by the system to place your passport on the machine’s scanner. For your travel documents to be scanned successfully by the machine, you must have a machine-readable passport.

If you do not have a machine-readable passport, your data will be registered as usual at the departure gate for your flight.
