Applying for a passport or identity card if you live abroad

Are you a Dutch national living abroad? And do you want to renew or apply for a Dutch passport or identity card (ID card)? Due to the corona virus, the possibilities to apply for a passport or ID card at an embassy or consulate-general are limited. This also applies to applications at an office of an external service provider such as VFS Global. It is still possible to apply for a passport or ID card at the passport counter at Schiphol or via a border municipality in the Netherlands. Choose the country where you live and check if it is possible to apply.
