Belgian passport

Since October the 1st 2012 all new Belgian passports delivered in Canada have to contain biometric data. These data (fingerprints, identity picture and signature) have to be registered “live”.

To obtain a biometric passport all Belgian citizens (from the age of six) have to apply therefore in person at the Consulate general in Montreal. When in need to apply for a passport but you can not make it to the Consulate general in Montreal, there are some alternatives to get your biometric data registered.
