Consular services

In view of the current situation regarding the COVID-19 pandemic, the Regional Consular Centre (RCC) has adapted its activities.

Where personal presence is required, an appointment must be arranged. Please contact the RCC in a timely manner in order to obtain an appointment. Only visitors with an appointment will be able to enter the building.

Passport / ID card application

The Regional Consular Centre (RCC) is now in a position to process passport/ID card applications again. However, please note that the RCC is experiencing a substantial backlog of applications due to COVID-19 and it is therefore taking longer than usual to process these. Booking any trips while you do not hold a valid passport/ID card is at your own risk.
The RCC appreciates your understanding in these challenging times.
