Service passport

A service passport is a type of passport that can be issued to nationals of the issuing country.

These nationals, who are not entitled to a diplomatic passport, carry out missions or are posted abroad on behalf of the government.

It can be issued to civil servants or military personnel, their spouses if they are not gainfully employed, and their minor children.

A service passport can be issued:

  • who are under orders to carry out missions abroad
  • of national interest, exclusively on behalf of a central government authority
  • who do not hold a diplomatic passport

 

to civil servants and military personnel

  • posted outside France
  • assigned to a permanent diplomatic mission or consular post
  • who do not hold a diplomatic passport

their spouse or civil union partner

 

the dependent minor children of the above-mentioned agents when local circumstances require the issue of such a document.

 

What are its main features?

A service passport is valid for 5 years. It is returned by the agent when its validity expires or when its use is no longer justified.

This passport includes:

  • The last name, first and middle names in the order given in vital records, date and place of birth, sex and, if the person concerned so requests, the name authorised by law
  • Eye colour, height
  • Nationality
  • The domicile or residence or, where applicable, the commune to which the person is attached, or the address of the host organisation with which the person is domiciled
  • The dates of issue and expiry of the document, and the issuing authority
  • The passport number
  • The holder's handwritten signature and digital image.
