Belgian passport

General Information

A passport is an official, worldwide recognized and usable travel document in the format of a booklet issued by the relevant authority in a particular State to its nationals.

One must make a distinction between a passport and an identity card which, as its name implies, is just a single card.

Belgian passports are valid 7 years (5 years for minors).

Any Belgian citizen can be issued his or her own passport starting at birth.

A passport allows its holder to travel to any country in the world, subject to fulfilling any applicable visa requirements.
