Due to the corona virus, we have requested travel documents (ID card or passport) (from 12 March) temporarily delivered to your home. This means you don't have to come by once. You will receive information about this during the application procedure. We take care of the extra costs. 

A passport or identity card can be used for travel and as proof of identity. Everyone over the age of 14 is required to be able to show proof of identity. Residents of Eindhoven with Dutch nationality can apply for a passport or identity card at the appropriate counter at Residents' Plaza, Stadhuisplein 1. To do this, make an appointment online to request a passport or request an identity card.
