Brunant first issued passports in 1877, as more and more nations were requiring them for travel abroad. In 1921 Brunant issued the first of the blue passports, which were issued until 2012.
In the 1990s Brunant began issuing European Union passports, but it was only until 2013 that the government began issuing the standard burgundy-colored passports. There was much opposition to the change in color, which was why it took a long time to approve and implement. Blue passports became invalidated after one month of the burgundy ones being introduced, with persons required to replace them for validity.
Most passports are of the regular type. These are issued to citizens are are required to be renewed every 10 years (for adults) and every 5 for minors.
Diplomatic passports are issued to diplomats and other consular staff sent abroad. These passports are dark green, having held that color since 1935.
The passport is burgundy-colored and features the Brunanter coat of arms in the center. The words "PASSPORT" AND "PASSPOORT" appear on the top and the full country name appears below in Dutch and English. Since 2010, biometric passports have the standard biometric symbol at the bottom. Along with France, Brunant was the only country to not feature a burgundy-colored passport cover, though this is being changed in 2013.
