by Anh Việt

Currently, the state and civil status management agencies or specialized competent agencies actively mobilize citizens to change their citizen identity cards with chips. At the same time, there are many innovations in the process of completing the first citizenship identification procedures for 14-year-old children, many of whom have not yet caught up. So about the matter “How long for a citizen identification card to expire in Vietnam?” Let’s find out with LSX in the article below.

Legal grounds:

  • Law on Citizenship Identity 2014

How long for a citizen identification card to expire in Vietnam?

According to the provisions of Clause 1, Article 19 of the Law on Citizenship Identity 2014:

“Article 19. Persons who are issued with a citizen identification card and citizen identification card numbers

1. Vietnamese citizens from full 14 years old shall be granted a citizen identification card.

2. Citizen ID card number is a personal identification number.”

As such, Vietnamese citizens will be issued with a citizen ID card for the first time when they are 14 years old or older. This citizen ID card is only valid for a certain period of time and people have to change a new ID card.

Specifically, Article 21 of the Law on Citizenship Identity 2014 stipulates the age to change the citizen ID card as follows:

“Article 21. Age to change the citizen’s identity card

1. The citizen identification card must be changed when the citizen is full 25 years old, full 40 years old and full 60 years old.

2. If a citizen’s identity card is issued, changed or re-issued within 2 years before the age specified in Clause 1 of this Article, it will still be valid until the next age of card change.”

So we can use the following calculation to know when it’s time to go to a new card:

+ Citizen IDs issued from the age of 14 to before the age of 23 will expire at the age of 25.

+ Citizen IDs issued from the age of 23 to before the age of 38 will expire at the age of 40.

+ Citizen ID cards issued from the age of 38 to before the age of 58 will expire at the age of 60.

+ Citizen’s identity from the age of 58 onwards will be used until the person’s death (except for cases where the card is lost or damaged).

What kind of identification card will become indefinite?

With the above analysis, we can know that the Citizen ID card with a chip has an expiration date of up to the following age milestones: full 25 years old; full 40 years old and full 60 years old.Tuy nhiên, nếu thuộc trường hợp công dân đó đã đủ 60 tuổi, tính đến thời điểm cấp thẻ, thì thời hạn sử dụng thẻ của họ là đến suốt đời, vô thời hạn tức được sử dụng cho đến khi người đó mất mà không cần làm thủ tục đổi thẻ bất cứ lần nào nữa, trừ trường hợp thẻ bị mất, hoặc bị hư hỏng…

Clause 2, Article 21 of the Law on Citizens Identity stipulates:

“2. If a citizen’s identity card is issued, changed or re-issued within 2 years before the age specified in Clause 1 of this Article, it will still be valid until the next age of card change.”

Thus, those who go to work with a chip-tied Citizen ID card when they reach the age of 58 can also use the card until their death, without having to change the card at the age of 60.

Note, people over 60 years old who are using barcode citizenship can continue to use them until their death, without being required to change to chip-based citizenship.
