Alien's passport

An alien's passport is a passport for non-Dutch residents staying or living in the Netherlands who are unable to procure a travel document in their country of origin.

Depending on your residency status in the Netherlands, the alien's passport is valid for a duration of a maximum of 5 years.

  • You can demonstrate that it is not possible to procure a passport from your country of origin;
  • You are registered in the Municipal Personal Records Database (BRP) of the municipality of Arnhem.
