Hello Nazari, thank you for your question. If that family has German citizenship (red passport) and are currently in Afghanistan. They should register here: They can help you further. If the passport has expired usually they have to go to a neighboring country such as Iran or Pakistan to renew their German passports, a requirement to renew your passport is that you have to have your old one with you. The fact that the children were automatically born in Germany does not give them citizenship. Here you can read more about the requirements are for your children to have German citizenship:

Let me know if this information was useful.
