Starting from June 1, Chongqing will introduce an identity card application system for non-Chongqing residents, enabling them to apply for ID cards at any application agency in Chongqing.
After allowing residents to apply for an ID card at any local public security bureau since August 30, 2019, Chongqing Municipal Public Security Bureau will extend this service to non-Chongqing residents since June 1, 2020. This follows the authority’s summary of previous experience and a ton of preparatory work such as system optimization, whole-process preparation, and issuance test, trans-provincial ID card postal service pilot, and service and operation training for household registration windows at city-wide public security stations.
By then, non-Chongqing residents who have already applied for a second-generation identity card and are legally and steadily employed, studying or living in Chongqing can renew or reapply for an ID card at any police station in Chongqing (they can even choose to get it by post) on the production of student ID card and student status certificate registered by the education department, or any valid identity certificate issued by the public security bureau such as the original resident ID card, motor vehicle driving license or passport after their residence information in Chongqing gets verified by the public security bureau handling their ID card renewal or reapplication.
After the materials submitted are approved, the public security bureau will collect the applicant’s portrait and fingerprint information on the spot. For renewing an expired ID card, RMB 20 will be charged, and for reapplying for a new card because the old card is damaged or lost, RMB 40 will be charged.
Apart from allowing non-Chongqing residents to apply for ID cards at any local public security bureau in Chongqing since June 1, local public security bureaus will shorten the time limit for obtaining identity cards from the current 20 to 15 working days against the national statutory time limit of 60 working days. It can be seen that the time limit for obtaining an ID card in Chongqing will be slashed.
Since Chongqing began accepting resident identity card application form non-Chongqing residents at designated public security bureaus, it has handled more than 310,000 such ID cards, reducing cost for people. The new identity card application system will further enhance the service capacity and level of local public security bureaus and make people feel more autonomous and convenient in applying for government services.
