This proof of identity is not sufficient to be able to travel. Your child still requires a national passport and/or proof of identity issued by the country of origin.

Proof of identity lost or stolen?

  1. Go to the police to report the loss or theft of your child's proof of identity. You will receive an 'Annex 12'.
  2. Make an appointment to apply for a duplicate of the proof of identity.
