Please Note

  1. Note that most of those born in 1989 have no separate ID number and their ID number is the national number.
  2. The national number is also specified in the new passports.
  3. If the dear compatriots do not have national ID number and are not aware of their national number and need their national number to perform their administrative or consular duties, including the carnation system, they can come in person and provide the authentic identity card. Submit a request to obtain their national number in writing to obtain and submit their national code as appropriate.
