The validity period is 10 years. To issue a pass ID, a good-quality, unused ID photo is required with an empty background, taken within one year, with a size not exceeding 3.5 ×4.5 cm. A printer and photo paper can also be used, but it is not acceptable if the photo shows additional objects or people. If the holder’s look has significantly changed, the replacement of the pass ID is highly advisable. A new pass ID must be issued in case the ID has been damaged to such an extent that the holder is no longer recognisable or if validity cannot be clearly determined. Replacement is subject to a handling fee.
