How to renew your digital ID

It is advised to submit an application for a new document at least 2-3 months prior to the expiration of your current document. In order to maintain access to e-services, you will need to renew before your current document expires.

The application is available here; select “Expiry of document” as the application type. The state fee to renew is 100€. 

Before you renew, be sure to check your eligibility to extend your digital ID from three years to five years.

My passport expired. Do I need to apply for a new e-Residency digital ID?

No. Your e-Residency digital ID is valid for (5) years and is not dependent on the validity of your identification document. Your identification document needs to be valid when submitting the application and when picking up the e-Residency digital ID.

I changed my name. Do I need to apply for a new e-Residency digital ID?

Yes. If your name changes, you will need to apply for a new e-Residency digital ID. This will require you to pay the state fee again. If you know your name will change in the near future we would advise to wait and apply once you have received a new identification document which displays your new name.
