Biometrics - 'Flying Consul' Missions

 Upcoming ‘Flying Consul’ Missions 


 26-27 April 2023  


 13-14 June 2023 


 9-10 May 2023 

To register for an appointment, go to page in French or page in Dutch 

Both Belgian passport and identity card now contain biometric data: in addition to the data concerning your identity and your nationality, your signature, your photo and your fingerprints are registered. 

Each year, the Consulate General in Montreal organises several biometric data collection missions (‘Flying Consul’). During these trips, the Consul travels to a large metropolitan area in Canada with mobile equipment, so that you can register your biometrics closer to home. If you need a passport, but not immediately, you can also pre-register your data: this pre-registration then remains valid for 1 year.  

The dates of the next missions are announced above. Ahead of these missions, Belgians living in the cities and regions concerned are also notified by e-mail. 

Please be aware that there is always a risk that these missions can be suspended or postponed if the conditions related to the COVID-19 pandemic so require. 

Kindly note: in order to be included in the list of appointments for these missions, you must first be registered in the population registry of the Consulate General in Montreal.
