The applicant must present the application for a passport (e-passport) in person. The application is completed on site with the processor. The applicant only has to sign.

The personal consultation is indispensable because of the handwritten signature on the application form and the identity verification. The identity can be proved by an official photo ID. This is usually the identity card or passport.

On the other hand, the passport can also be collected by a written agent who must be identified.
