Do I Need a 13-Digit Identity Number of an Individual?

When applying for any document from the Department of Home Affairs, you will need the newest 13-digit identity number of the person on whom you require the document for.

The 13-digit identity number will allow Home Affairs to locate the file of the person and enable them to prepare the required documents as requested.

Without a 13-digit identity number, Home Affairs will likely not be in a position to assist you in obtaining documents.
