Emergency passport

Are you going on a trip and have you lost your passport or identity card? And is it not possible to apply for a new travel document before the start of your trip? In that case, you can apply for an emergency passport. This is a temporary travel document.

Who can apply?

You are eligible to apply for an emergency passport if you:

  • Hold Dutch nationality.
  • Are unable to get a new passport or identity card from your local municipality in time.

What will you need?

To apply for an emergency passport, you will need:

  • Proof you cannot delay your trip, like flight tickets and hotel bookings.
  • Any other travel documents you might have.
  • A valid form of ID, such as a Dutch driving license, and/or a recent, certified copy of your Personal Records Database (BRP) showing your nationality. This must be in a sealed envelope from your municipality.
  • A recent passport photo that meets the necessary requirements.

If you cannot provide the usual ID, you will need a certified copy of your recent new travel document application (RAAS form), in a sealed envelope from your municipality.
