Passport or ID card for children
Children need their own passport or ID card to travel abroad. Children from 14 years old must be able to identify themselves in the Netherlands. The child must be present personally at the appointment. From 12 years old, children may request an ID card. Both parents or guardians must give their permission in order to apply for a passport for children under the age of 18. There are two possibilities for this:
- A parent or guardian goes to the city hall for the application. The other parent or guardian gives written permission via the form ‘permission travel document child(ren)’. Both passports, ID cards or driving licences are needed. You may also bring copies.
- If both parents or guardians cannot come to the city hall, then they both have to give written permission via the form ‘permission travel document child(ren)’. Please include the signed forms and (copies of) passports, ID cards or driving licences.
The costs for a Dutch passport are €56,55 (for persons up to 18 years) and €74,75 (for people aged 18 and over).
The costs for a Dutch ID card card are €32,90 (for persons up to 18 years) and €64,- (for people aged 18 and over). When you need your passport or ID card urgently, it costs €50,90 extra (rates 2021).
