Identity Card Renewal - minor

Overview

If your child is a Dutch national younger than 12 years old and its identity card needs to be renewed, you can apply for a Dutch identity card on their behalf together with the child. Both parents of children who are younger than 12 years old need to give their consent to apply for a Dutch identity card.

Children who are 12 years old or older do not need the permission of their parents and can apply for a Dutch identity card themselves. In this case the parents do not need to be present during the identity card application.

Please note that this service is only available at our Edinburgh Visa Application Centre at:

1 Rennie’s Isle, Leith

As part of a pilot to improve consular services for Dutch nationals abroad this service is available at our Edinburgh Visa Application Centre until 31 July 2017.
