Bilhete de identidade (Mozambique)
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:
- Finger Print
- Identification Number
- Full Name
- Date of Birth
- Place and Date of Issue
- Expiration Date
- Marital Status
- Government of Mozambique Website (in Portuguese)
- Boletim da República (Government Bulletin) March 2, 1999 (in Portuguese)
