Calendar by embassy and consulate
Not all Belgian representations will start delivering the new biometric passport at the same time.
You will be informed
A few weeks before the biometric passport is put into production in a particular embassy or consulate, all Belgians who are registered there and who have provided their email address will receive an instructional email.
Belgian representations will also post on their website the date that the biometric passport will be launched in their jurisdiction.
Does your Belgian representation already issue the new biometric passport?

Note: As soon as a post starts issuing biometric passports with fingerprints, it is no longer possible to apply for a passport by mail.
