Passports and national ID cards for adults

Many people want to renew their passports right now. We therefore kindly ask you to only apply for a passport if your passport's expiration date is within the coming three months.

The application process, step by step:
  • Make sure you have all the documents required, see the CHECKLIST below.
  • Make an appointment in the online booking system. If no time slots appear, it means that they are already booked. New time slots are published regularly. Please check often for new time slots.
  • Come in time to your appointment at the Embassy. At the Embassy, taking a digital photo and finger prints will be part of the application process. When applying you also pay the application fee.
  • After 4-6 weeks, you will receive a message that your passport or ID card is ready to be picked up.
  • Check here when you can collect your passport or ID card from the Embassy in The Hague. Don't forget to bring your old passport or ID card for cancellation and you need a valid ID document if your old passport/ID card has expired. If you have applied for the passport somewhere else, there is a fee of 20 EUR. The custodian can collect a passport/ID card for children under the age of 15 without them being present and must present a valid ID document.
