The National Identity Card (CIN) arrived to revolutionize the way we deal with our documents in Brazil. In general, it serves to ensure that the document is unified.

The new National Identity Card (CIN) brings with it significant changes: it now integrates the CPF as a single identification number throughout the national territory, eliminating the possibility of an individual having multiple ID numbers, one per state.

This unification aims to simplify bureaucratic processes and reinforce security, minimizing fraud. Furthermore, the new CIN has a QR Code and an international MRZ code, increasing its authenticity and allowing its use as a travel document in Mercosur countries.

Why did the document change?

The transformation of the identity card reflects efforts to modernize and secure civil identification in Brazil.

Unification around the CPF seeks to simplify citizens’ lives, avoiding confusion and the accumulation of documents with different identification numbers. Furthermore, the change aims to curb fraud, as the multiplicity of records facilitated illicit practices.

Important details about the identity card

Issuing the first copy and renewals of the CIN is free, but be careful: there may be a service fee at notary offices. In case of loss or theft of the document, a fee will be charged for issuing the second copy. CIN varies according to the holder’s age, ensuring more practicality and suitability for different stages of life.

This step towards modernizing personal documents not only facilitates citizens’ daily lives, but also reinforces data security and reduces the chances of fraud.

Furthermore, the National Identity Card is an example of how technology can be applied to improve public services and the lives of the population.
