The Dutch Ministry of Foreign Affairs
A secure online system for registering foreign diplomats and their families
The Diplomatic ePortal is an online system for registering staff members at foreign missions and intergovernmental organisations (such as the International Court of Justice, the International Criminal Court, Europol and the European Space Agency). The Netherlands hosts more than 100 embassies and 22,000 foreign employees of these organisations. The personal data these individuals provide is transferred to a highly secure internal digital system WORTH built alongside MFA stakeholders, which significantly expedites a formerly paper-based process. The application has radically transformed how the ministry processes diplomat registrations, reducing workload, while improving efficiency.
