I want to send my passport to our embassy in Madrid. I live in the Netherlands. What are my options?

PostNL? is it safe to send the passport using it?

  • When you say 'our' embassy, to which country are you referring? If it's the country indicated in your profile, have you considering asking your embassy/consulate in the Netherlands whether it would send it via its secure courier system?

  • Define "secure".

We had a similar situation when there was no Canadian embassy in Netherlands.

So the nearest was in UK or Austria. And on their website was clear instruction how to send and receive the passport with DHL.

DHL courier service allows you to send passports.

I also know that in Ukraine TNT was responsible for delivering passports within the country. Looks like they also ship documents.

I would call your embassy and ask if they have preferred solution. If not I would propose them variant with your preference.
