Any lost identity card, passport or other official document that is found, is always brought in at the Lost & Found service of Brussels Airport.
Report your loss here, for us to be able to contact you when the item is found.
However, you will need provisional documents for travel. For this, you will need to report the loss to the police.
If you find a passport, hand it over to a member of the airport staff as soon as possible (e.g. at the information desk on departures, at security screening or to one of the Airport Crew ) so that they can give it to the Lost & Found service of Brussels Airport.
We store all official documents for maximum 1 month, afterwards they are transferred to the Federal Police and it is not possible to recover them.
Depending on the situation, lost baggage can be sent back by the airline or the handling agent.
However, you may be asked to collect your lost or exchanged baggage yourself at the airport. What do you need for this?
With these documents, you register with the security agent at the entrance of the reclaim area on arrival level. After your documents have been checked, the security agent can grant you access to the baggage hall so that you can contact your airline's handling agent.
Important: In the current circumstances, only one person per case will be admitted to the reclaim area.
If you have received notification that your item has been found, you can come and collect it ( with an appointment ) or we can send your belonging to you.
We will keep you up-to-date with our search. 7 days after you have submitted your request, you will receive an e-mail from us with the status. We will repeat this after 14 days.
