If you are a Dutch national and currently live in Slovakia, you can apply to the Dutch embassy or consulate in another country, such as Austria or Hungary, for a passport or identity card. The photo you submit with your application must meet specific requirements.

Getting a passport photo made that meets Dutch requirements

Other countries often have different requirements for passport photos than the Netherlands. You should always tell a photographer abroad exactly what requirements your passport photo must meet. Also tell them that the photos are for the Dutch embassy or consulate. If the photos don’t meet the requirements your passport or identity card application may be rejected. The photographers listed below are located near the embassy or consulate and are familiar with the Dutch requirements.

Where can you have your passport photo taken?

There is no information available for Slovakia. You may wish to refer to the passport photo information for Austria (in Dutch) or Hungary.
