Delivery times
The Foreign and European Affairs Ministry organizes a mailing from Luxembourg to the Embassy in Bangkok every three or four weeks only. Passports may be picked up by applicants or by a trustworthy person at the Embassy. Alternatively, passports may be picked up at the Passport Office in Luxembourg by a designated representative (and the mandate letter as well as the passport application receipt shall be presented).

Picking up passports
Holders of a new passport will be advised, by the Embassy, to pick up their passport either by email or by phone call. If the Embassy is unable to contact them, the latter should reach us, knowing that any passport may be held no more than 6 months from the delivery date by the legal authority. In addition, holders are required to come in person, without duly justified reason, in order to pick up their new passport, along with their previous travel document and their application receipt. 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.
