Home Consular Services Passport renewal
Belgians that are no longer registered in Belgium or any country outside of China 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. Those registered in Belgium or outside of China, can in case of urgency apply for a temporary passport with a maximum validity of one year.
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 15 working days.
The following documents are needed:
- Duly completed and signed application form (pleae note that the forms of minors must be signed by both parents)
- One recent passport photo
- Passport fee
- (If applicable) proof of address change
- Current passport (this will be annulled upon delivery of the new passport)
