Passport and ID card for Dutch nationals living abroad

If you are a Dutch national living abroad, you can apply for a passport and/or ID card at the Municipality of Breda. Prior to the application, you need to complete a questionnaire and send documents. We will contact you by e-mail within 2 weeks of receipt. After approval of the documents, we will send you an e-mail explaining how to make an appointment to apply for a passport or ID card at the Municipal Office.

Completing the questionnaire

  • First prepare your personal checklist on the website Nederland wereldwijd (Dutch).
  • Completing the checklist gives you the list of documents that you will need.
  • These documents have to be added to the questionnaire that you fill in next. Therefore, please make sure that you have scanned all the necessary documents before you start filling in the questionnaire.
  • For a passport for children aged up to 18 and for an ID card for children up to 12 you also need to fill in the consent form. The form must be signed by both parents or by the person who has custody of the child. Enclose copies of a valid passport or ID card of the signatories:
