Privileged Person's Identity Card

The Privileged Person's Identity Card is reserved for employees of foreign authorities, embassies, consulates or international organizations based in the Netherlands. It is also reserved for family members of these employees. Holders of this document have diplomatic status. They therefore enjoy certain privileges and immunities. The nature of these privileges and immunities is connected with the level of their diplomatic status.

Privileged persons are exempted from registration with the Aliens Department and the population register of the municipality where they (will) reside. This only applies if they do not have the Dutch nationality.

This document is issued by the Ministry of Foreign Affairs.
