    ID cards in Germany are compulsary. But does anyone know if you need to be German to receive a German ID card, or just to reside in the country?

    We have a German ID card that confirms the person was born in Togo.

    Any help is greatly appreciated.

    Not 100% sure but fairly certain you would only have a German ID card if you have German nationality. I know for a fact that a German citizen with an ID card can travel freely within the EU with just an ID card and does not need a passport. We had a German girl staying with us last year who did just that. I cannot therefore imagine that someone without German nationality could be issued a German ID card that would give them the right to travel freely throughout the EU.
