Summer rush at the municipality

Published: 11 July 2019Modified:

With the summer holidays approaching, demand is rising for travel documents such as passports and ID cards. This is making it extra busy at the municipal counters at the Escamp and Centrum city offices, especially during the walk-in hours. Visitors may have to wait up to more than 2 hours during the walk-in hours before they are being served.

The municipality regrets that people have to wait longer and will take immediate measures to relieve some of the pressure as much as possible. The Escamp city office will have additional opening hours by appointment on Saturdays on 13, 20 and 27 July from 8.30 to 16.30 hrs.
