Applying for a new passport or renewing your old one


You apply for a passport in person. This also applies to children. Make an appointment for this at the municipality. Seven days later you can pick up your passport by appointment, after 10.30 am, at the town hall. You can travel all over the world with a passport. Young people up to the age of 18 need permission from all authorities to apply for a passport. Give permission with DigiD or fill in the permission form (pdf).
