The Bilhete de identidade (English: Identity Card), commonly abbreviated to BI, is the national ID card of Mozambique.


New applications for a BI require a valid birth certificate and photo. If renewing a BI within six months of expiry a birth certificate is not required, just the old card and new photo. If replacing a lost/stolen/expired BI, a new application must be made and so both a birth certificate and photo are required.


The BI is a 10.5 cm x 7.2 cm laminated card, embossed with an issuing seal. It is titled with República de Moçambique (English: Republic of Mozambique) with the national seal. It includes the following information about the card holder:

  • Photograph
  • Finger Print
  • Identification Number
  • Full Name
  • Sex
  • Nationality
  • Date of Birth
  • Place and Date of Issue
  • Expiration Date
  • Height
  • Occupation
  • Marital Status
  • Address
  • Signature
