Applying for a Dutch passport or identity card if you live in Liberia

If you want to apply for a Dutch passport or ID card and you live in Liberia, follow this step-by-step plan.

Step 1: Create your personal checklist

Creating a personal checklist will show you what documents you need in order to apply for a passport or ID card. Create a separate checklist for each application. This means one for you and one for your child, for instance.

When you have created your checklist, go to step 2.

Step 2: Check the additional requirements

Your personal checklist (see step 1) will show you that you also need documents from Liberia in order to apply for a Dutch passport or ID card. You can also see whether your documents need to be legalised and translated.

Step 3: Make an appointment

Once you know which documents you need, you can make an appointment in Ghana or the Netherlands. Make a separate appointment for every application you wish to submit.

Step 4: Go to your appointment

You must submit your passport or ID card application in person. Even applicants under 18 must appear in person.

Step 5: Collect your passport or ID card or have it sent to you

You will receive an e-mail when your new passport or ID card is ready. You must collect your new document within 3 months or have it sent to you. After that, it will be destroyed.

On the page How long is the application process for a Dutch passport or ID card abroad you can read more about the processing time of a passport or ID card.
