Do I apply using Route 1 or Route 2?

The easiest way to get a CitizenCard ID is to show an official document confirming your identity to your referee, who needs to vouch that the details within the CitizenCard application match the details listed on the document. If you have access to an official document confirming your identity such as a birth certificate, NHS medical card, CRB (Criminal Records Bureau) Check document, European Health Insurance Card, passport, UK photo driving licence, EU National ID card, PASS card or Home Office approved photo ID apply for your UK ID card using Route 1.
Please note if your name has been changed since birth e.g. by marriage or change of name deed you must also provide evidence of this. You must show the original legal document confirming your new name e.g. marriage certificate or change of name deed to your referee. You must photocopy the document and get your referee to sign the photocopy and send this to us with your other countersigned document confirming your identity and CitizenCard application.

If you don’t have ready access to any official document confirming your identity listed above, apply for your UK ID card using Route 2. In this case your referee needs to vouch that the details in the application match their official workplace records.

Regardless of if you are applying by Route 1 or Route 2 your referee must confirm your passport quality photograph is a true likeness of you. Your referee must countersign the photograph on the reverse stating “I certify this is a true likeness of (the applicants name).” followed by the referees name, signature and date of the certification. Both certification and referee signature must be present in order for the declaration on your photograph to be valid.

If you already have a CitizenCard and you just wish to renew or replace your existing card, you can apply for a replacement ID card.
