I live in the UK since allmost a year and would like to visit family and friends in Germany followed by an interrail trip. So I would like to get an Interrail pass as a UK resident. Eventhough I found the FAQ concerning how to prove residency
Your residence can be proved with official government-issued residency papers. This must be a valid document that clearly shows that you're an official resident of the country you live in (for example, a residence card).
Your proof of residence will be accepted if:
- It is issued by the government.
- It is valid for the entire duration of your Interrail trip.
- It has an official mark or stamp from the issuing body.
- It clearly states the issuing country.
- It clearly states your name.
Documents such as bills, rental contracts or bank statements cannot be used. Travel visas and the residency field of a passport are also not accepted as proof of residency.
I still have no Idea what kind of document I should use for this. After all as a European citizen you dont have to register here so there was really no occasion at which I could have gotten such a document. Also I can't apply for a residency card as this is only granted to non european citizens.
Does anybody has experience with this situation?
I contacted the WhatsApp help service from Interrail: they just repeated that I need a document that satisfies the properties listed above.
