I requested a new one last week, and it took only 5 days to get it.

Q: As an EU citizen, do I need a passport or ID card to travel between EU countries?
While it is true you don't need need a passport at the borders of Schengen countries (of which the UK is NOT one), in the Netherlands, anyone over 12 years old is legally required to carry an ID. An ID would be passport, ID-card, DUTCH driving license, and some others, like a foreigner's pass (i.e. green card). I'm presuming something like that exists in other EU countries too. Note that driving licenses from other countries are not included in that list and you'd technically get a €50,-- fine, as well as getting taken to the precinct untill some other way to establish identity is found, if you don't have anything else to identify yourself. I don't think most policemen would be that strict with the rules, but it's better to be safe than sorry.

Well Ana, it is a solution, albeit an expensive one. JKust think though, you won't have to renew it again for what? Five years? And I can bet you won't be making that mistake again!

Sounds like you've made progress either eay. Hopefully the weather clears up to make your travel to London easier....xo

I phoned the consulate as well, but it turns out that the "consulate" is actually a woman who comes and sit's at a solicitor's one day a week and hands out advice, she can't do passports or visa. early morning trek to london it is.
but I think I'll be going for the emergency provisional passport that's valid for a year, and then just get a proper passport and ID card when I go to germany next time.

at least I'll be able to go on holiday with it, even though I won't be able to travel to the US with it, as it's just a little paper slip, not one of those biometric things you need now.

My new passport has all that, except for the fingerprints. The lady that handed out my new one mentioned that that's been postpone, and she didn't know why, either.

They actually say on the german embassy website that they take fingerprints for the passport when you go there for your appointment. all passports done after september 2008 or something need to have fingerprints here, I think.

My Lady Anaiya, I can provide you with a 'taer clan passport that will be accepted world wide without question.


Seriously, sorry to hear of all the problems. Hope you get them sorted out properly.

there's always travel in my future, Ish Only now KLM has cancelled direct flights between Amsterdam and Tallinn as of May 9th So I guess I'll have to go through Stockholm or Copenhagen next time...

what I really should get is my ID card, that way I can vote online... it's a bit more important now that elections are coming up in Estonia.

SoE, Seitaer and his lady, and I are tentatively planning a 2010 escapade into Europe. Of course if the current recession dilema continues that may not be possible. Guess I better get started on my passport. May take a good while considering the U. S. Postal Service handles it. Hmmm...wonder if I have an in there??? Nope!!

Apparently the chip in the UK ones now store your photo, and all passport holder stats which are listed on page 31 of the passport. I didn't know I had any stats listed on page 31 *makes note to check*. I don't remember giving eye colour or height when applying. At any time. I don't even know how tall I am!

Doesn't say anything about fingerprints though.

I have my height, eye colour and registered address on the back of my ID card, so I'm assuming that info is saved somewhere on my passport as well.

I've finally managed to speak to someone USEFUL at the embassy, and they decided to now tell me that I can actually get such a thing as a "return" passport, that will enable me to travel to germany once, so I would be able to apply for my new passport and ID card there. It costs 20 pounds, can be done on the spot, doesn't need an appointment, and only requires me to show proof of a booked flight and a couple of photos.
took them bloody long enough.
