Passport renewal

Belgians that are no longer registered in Belgium and that are registered at the Embassy in Beijing, the Consulate General in Guangzhou or the Consulate General in Shanghai can apply for a new biometric passport. 

Belgian citizens that are officially registered at the Embassy or Consulate General, can apply during office hours for a biometrical passport valid for 7 years. We highly recommend making an appointment in order to avoid having to wait. After the application, the passport usually arrives within 6 weeks.

Since 07 February 2022, new models of passports are issued: more information can be found via this link.

The following documents are needed:

  • Duly completed and signed application form (please note that the forms of minors must be signed by both parents)

    Adults and children older than 6 

    Children younger than 6 

  • One recent passport photo 
  • Passport fee 
  • (If applicable) proof of address change 
  • Current passport (this will be annulled upon delivery of the new passport)
