Mandatory 3-month retention
When you apply for a passport in Belgium, we must retain your data for 3 months in our “passport production” database. Doing so enables us to:
- Produce your passport.
- Reproduce immediately a new passport if an administrative or production error on the return of your passport is noticed. This means that you will not have to return a second time to provide new data.
At the end of this 3-month retention period, your data will be deleted from this “passport production” database.
