My Number Card
I have been told to create a My Number Card.
A My Number Card (an IC-chip embedded card along with your photo ) can be used as an official identification. You will have to apply for creating one, as it is not automatically issued to you. Please contact the local municipality of your place for application methods. Your My Number Card will become invalid once your residency status has reached its expiration date. In addition, you will have to renew your My Number Card along with a renewal of your residency status. Please contact Support-R for further information.
We will update this website to provide accurate information, as it changes constantly.
Please make sure that your information is up to date. If you have any questions, please contact Support-R.
