It is recommended to arrange an appointment before submitting a biometric passport application. Please dial +66 (0)2 677 7360 or contact us by email:

Applicants for a new biometric passport shall be required to appear in person in order to check their identity, and collect their digitized fingerprints. Although minors under 12 are exempted from fingerprinting, their presence is mandatory, unless otherwise stipulated by the Embassy.

Where it is not possible for applicants to appear in person for any valid reason, one-year temporary passports (€50) may be issued. On the other hand, applicants shall either pick up their new passport or shall receive it by mail through a trustworthy person of Luxembourg. Upon receiving their passport, holders shall either have their previous travel document cancelled or shall cancel it by themselves after approval by the Embassy. By derogation from this principle, holders are authorized to hold their expired passports.

It is important to note that personal data of applicants (legal address, marital status, etc.) shall correspond to those in the National Registry. In this respect, applicants shall be certain that everything is up-to-date, and shall request any change, if relevant, at , by sending adequate documents even before coming to the Embassy.



  To change a Luxembourg address to an overseas one in the National Registry, please contact first the Luxembourgian municipality of your last residence to obtain a departure certificate. Then it is possible to update your information into the National Registry .

Please see also the earlier paragraph regarding time delivery for passports sent from Luxembourg.

Passports cancellation
Passports will be physically cancelled when picking up new ones, unless otherwise stipulated by the Embassy. Cancelled passports will be handed over on request. If the Embassy has agreed that passport holders cancel their previous travel document by themselves, it is should be done upon receiving the new one and by sending a proof by email to the Embassy.
