Applying for a passport or ID card if you live in Guadeloupe

If you are a Dutch national living in Guadeloupe and you want to apply for or renew a Dutch passport or ID card, you can go to a Dutch embassy or consulate-general in another country, such as Trinidad and Tobago (information only available in Dutch). You can also lodge your application at a Dutch border municipality or at the Schiphol desk.

Due to the corona virus, until further notice, you cannot apply for a passport or ID card at most embassies and consulates-general. In the text above you can see whether it is possible to apply at an embassy or a consulate-general. You will also see as of which date it will be possible. Don't see a start date? In that case, you can only submit your application at a number of Dutch border municipalities and at Schiphol for the time being.

Step 1: Create your personal checklist

It is important for your passport or ID card application that you bring the correct documents with you. You should therefore create a personal checklist for you or the child you're applying on behalf of. Then you’ll know what documents to bring. Step 2 shows you whether there are additional document requirements in the country you live in.

  • You may need to have the original legalised.
  • You may provide documents in Dutch, English, German or French. Abroad and at the passport desk at Schiphol airport in Amsterdam, you may also provide documents from the civil registrar in Spanish. If your documents are in another language, you must have them translated by a sworn translator.
  • You may be asked to provide additional documents.
  • You must appear in person to apply for your passport. Someone else is not allowed to do this for you. This also applies to someone under the age of 18. He or she must also be present at the application.
