At the appointment the following documents shall be submitted:
- Birth certificate on international form (can be requested at the local municipality, where the birth of a child has been registered);
- Personal identification documents (passport and/or ID card) of the parent(s).
Following the submission of documents and completion of the application form, the personal identity number is granted to the child in approximately 1 week.
