Good news for Dutch citizens in and around Izmir!
From August 28, 2023 it is possible to apply for a Dutch passport or ID card in Izmir, at the office of our external service provider VFS Global.
You can only apply for a passport or ID card at VFS if you are in possession of a valid Dutch travel document at the time of the appointment. It must therefore not have expired on that day.
Please note that VFS Global, unlike the Embassy and Consulate General, charges € 18.60 service costs for processing a passport or ID card application. However, this is generally cheaper and less time consuming than a trip to Ankara or Istanbul!
During the opening week VFS Global will charge no service costs for processing a passport or ID card application.
