DSI and DSAJ collaborated to provide self-service for updating marital status of identity card

Macao residents can update the marital status of their identity cards with self-service kiosk right after marriage registration

The Identification Services Bureau (DSI) and the Legal Affairs Bureau (DSAJ) collaborated again to launch a simplification measure for updating the marital status of their Macao SAR Resident Identity Cards through self-service.Starting from today (31st October 2018), eligible residents can change the marital status of their Macao SAR Resident Identity Cards with self-service kiosks located at the Civil Affairs Registry (CRC) once completed the marriage registration. It’s not required to proceed to DSI for the above purpose anymore.

Expectant spouses, who are the electronic Macao SAR Resident Identity Card holders, can authorize the CRC, subordinated to the DSAJ, to provide DSI with the information related to their application for marriage registration, and also the Marriage Registration Certificate requested by them, when they present the application of the marriage registration at the CRC. Within 60 days from the date of marriage registration, the spouses can use the designated self-service kiosks to update the marital status of their resident identity cards. Those who are not eligible for such self-service will have to follow the normal procedure.Moreover, if the marriage is registered on the day following the issuance of the CRC’s marriage permission, the spouses can only update the marital status of their identity cards with the self-service kiosk on the first day after marriage registration.

At present, the above-mentioned self-service kiosk is available at the CRC located at the Public Administration Building and at Largo do Carmo, Taipa. Besides the above measure, eligible residents can also choose to go through the relevant formalities at DSI. For details about the formalities for updating the marital status of resident identity card, please visit DSI’s website: www.dsi.gov.mo/idcard03_e.jsp.
