How many countries can I travel to with a temporary passport (1-year validity). I would like to travel to the USA and Canada, but I'm not sure if it's OK to travel there with a temporary passport, because I can't get the normal passport for now.

Thank you in advance for your help.

    What's your actual question, here. "How many countries?" doesn't seem like it's much use to you -- suppose the answer is 28: then what? Also, are you asking literally about the number of countries, or about the total number of trips? It's probably better to limit your question to just "Can I go to the USA and Canada?" – David Richerby Aug 23 '18 at 16:20

You can look up entry requirements for all countries on the website of the German Federal Foreign Office. For example, entering the USA on a temporary passport is only possible if you have a visa, so you can't use ESTA in this case and have to apply for a visa at the US embassy/consulate instead. Canada on the other hand allows eTA even with a temporary passport, so you don't need a visa there.
