Unfortunately, the Dutch government will stop issuing passports in Chicago, Atlanta, Boston and Los Angeles.
The Dutch Embassy just announced that after October 1, 2015, passport and visa applications can only be submitted at the Dutch Consulates General in Miami, San Francisco and New York, and at the Netherlands Embassy in Washington, D.C.
This is bad news for many Dutch citizens in the United States since it means their travel time to renew passports will dramatically increase. As a reminder: it is important for Dutch people living abroad to renew their passports on time. Not having a passport while living abroad can mean that you lose your Dutch citizenship.
We wrote about this in 2013 though later it seemed as if the Consulate in Chicago might be spared.
