Municipality of Hilvarenbeek: applying for a new passport or renewing your old one

Please note: you can only apply for a new Dutch passport or renew your old one if you live in the Netherlands and are registered with a municipality.

Do you have Dutch nationality, but no fixed place of residence? Then you can contact a Dutch border municipality to apply for a new passport or to renew your old one.

  • Your old passport and/or identity card, even if they are no longer valid
  • A color passport photo of a maximum of 6 months old. 
  • Debit card (cash payment is not possible)

Under 18? Please note, the following rules apply to children up to the age of 18:

  •  Both parents or authorities must give prior permission for the application. Fill in the consent form online for this
  • Don't have a DigiD? Then print the written statement of consent. Fill it in and take the form with you to the appointment together with a (copy) passport or identity card
  • The child must be present at the time of application and collection

You must apply for a passport in person at the municipality where you live. Make an appointment to apply for a passport.

You pay a fee for this service. For more information, contact the municipality.

After around a week, you can collect your passport yourself from the municipality. This also applies to children up to the age of 18. When you apply, you will be provided with more information about how to collect your passport.

You have 3 months in which to collect your new passport.

Do you need your passport sooner than that?

  • If you need your passport quickly, you can make a spoedaanvraag (urgent request). If you apply for the passport before 14:00, you will be able to collect it the next working day. Allow for some delay if you no longer have your old passport.
  • If you need the passport today, contact the Koninklijke Marechaussee (Royal Netherlands Marechaussee) for an emergency passport.


  • An adult passport is valid for 10 years.
  • For children up to the age of 18, a passport is valid for 5 years.
