The decree n 2013-1188 extends the validity of the national identity card (CNI) for adults over the age of 18 from 10 to 15 years beginning January 1, 2014. This metric also applies to CNI given to adults between January 2, 2004 and December 31, 2013. These ID cards appear to have expired, yet they are still valid. The new deadline for their renewal is March 1.
National identity cards are required by law in Argentina to verify one's identity and residence. They can be used instead of a passport for travel within the country. There is an optional form of identification that can be used in place of a national identity card for temporary stays or special situations such as immigration interviews or police checks.
Since 2001, all Argentine citizens over the age of 14 were obliged to possess a national identity card. Previously, only those who could prove that they had been born outside of Argentina were required to have one. Those who did not have one were subject to fines.
Those who fail to comply with this requirement may be fined up to $50,000 or imprisoned for three months. Also, anyone who loses his/her national identity card will not be able to get another one until it has been lost for at least six months.
One may request an extension of one's national identity card by sending an email to [email protected] Such requests must be sent by February 1st of each year.
Identity cards are only valid for ten years (5 years for children under the age of 5 on the date of issue). A new card must be obtained if you want to continue using your current identity document when visiting certain countries.
ID cards that expired before January 1, 2020, were not extended and must be replaced. ID cards that expire after July 31, 2021, must be replaced by the expiration date. If you do not replace your ID card by the expiration date, you will not be able to board any bus or rail passenger vehicle in Texas.
If your ID card expires and you cannot get a new one before the expiration date, you will need to bring a copy of your old ID card with you when you visit a driver license office. The staff member will have to check your record to make sure your identity has not been suspended or revoked. If your information is correct, they will issue you a new ID card. You must use the new ID card within six months of its issuance.
The only exception is if you are unable to obtain any form of identification that includes your photograph. In this case, you can provide a document that shows your full legal name. This could include a birth certificate, marriage license, or social security card. These documents must be valid proofs of identity that show your name as it appears on your military ID card.
If you fail to produce proof of identity when obtaining a new driver license, your driver license will be suspended for two years.
ID cards are valid for 15 years, and since 2000, the bearer's name has also been typed in Latin letters. Older ID cards with just Greek characters were remained valid and of equal value after 2000, as long as they had been issued during the previous 55 years. These special ID cards can be obtained from the police for 25 euros.
The new system came into effect on January 1, 2000. Before then, people who wanted to travel or work outside Greece needed a special visa if their ID card was more than 55 days old. Under the new system, anyone who wants to travel abroad should obtain a Greek passport instead. The Greek government has offered a 500-euro reward to anyone who presents them with a lost ID card that satisfies certain criteria.
Greek ID cards contain an embedded chip that holds biometric information such as the holder's photo, name, date of birth, address, and signature. This information is verified when the card is used to access services such as public transportation or a bank account. If the card is lost or stolen, it can be cancelled by an official at any state office.
Cancellation fees vary depending on how long ago the card was issued. A card that was issued less than 10 years ago can be free of charge. For those issued between 10 and 20 years earlier, there is a cancellation fee of 50 euros.
