Required documents:

  • Valid ID/Citizen's Card;
  • Letter with PIN codes;
  • 1 (one) Passport-type photo (for our files) - small size but exact measurements unimportant;
  • Payment with cash or check (credit or debit cards not accepted) - see below.



  • IMPORTANT: A second visit to the Consulate (appointment is necessary) or to a Consular Visit (appointment is necessary) is required to conclude the process and activate the Card.
  • IMPORTANT: Due to vastness of the Consulate's jurisdiction, if a second visit is impractical OR if you no longer have the letter with the PIN codes, we instead advise the renewal of the ID Card with the new address. 



  • Normal – $3.43; Consular Visit: $3.94
