2. Online declaration when applying for Citizen Identity Card from December 01, 2019

This content is provided in the Circular No. 48/2019/TT-BCA providing amendments to procedures for issuance, replacement and re-issuance of Citizen Identity Cards. To be specific:

When a citizen follows procedures for issuance, replacement or re-issuance of the Citizen Identity Card, the in-charge official shall request the applicant to complete the declaration form for the Citizen Identity Card (in case of direct declaration).

If the applicant has completed the declaration form for the Citizen Identity Card on the online public services portal, it shall be printed out and the applicant shall append his/her signature and full name to it after checking.

 (Currently, there is no regulation stipulating the online declaration for Citizen Identity Card. However, the online declaration is being applied in Ho Chi Minh City).

This regulation is absolutely practical and meets the people’s legitimate expectations", said Mr. Bui Tuong Vu, Legal Advocate and Director of THƯ VIỆN PHÁP LUẬT.
