Biometric missions

Below is the tentative schedule for the Biometric Missions for the year 2022.

These dates and locations are still subject to change. Free entry into the state/country without COVID restrictions for Embassy staff is a prerequisite for the mission to go ahead. Due to the unpredictable nature of COVID restrictions, some missions may be cancelled or delayed on very short notice. The Embassy does not take responsibility for any costs you may incur due to these changes. 

If you need a new Belgian passport or ID card in the next few months and you wish to take part in one of these missions, you will need to send your application to the Embassy in Canberra only after the mission has been confirmed, with the request to have your biometric data taken during the Biometric Mission. This way you will not need to come to Canberra.

The Embassy will send an email with detailed information to all registered Belgians living in the area of each of the missions well on time.

NOTE: Only after you have sent us a complete passport application including payment details, is an appointment possible. Please note that places are limited. We urge you not to book your flight/ accommodation until you have an appointment.

When?

The preliminary dates and locations of the missions in 2022 are published below. Please note that final locations and dates will follow later and that this list is subject to change.
