Application of Macao SAR Resident Identity Card ( BIR )

Death Declaration


How to Apply

Application Procedures and Documents Required

If Macao SAR Resident Identity Card holders passed away outside Macao, the deceased’s relatives who knew such fact are required to declare the death of the deceased to DSI in person or by mail (mailing address: Macao Postal Box No.1089).

1. Deceased in the Mainland

Documents to submit: the original copy of the Macao SAR Resident Identity Card of the deceased (if any) and the notarized death certificate/ medical proof of death/ proof of death with an official stamp issued by the Public Security Bureau or police station in the Mainland.

2. Deceased overseas

Documents to submit: the original copy of the Macao SAR Resident Identity Card of the deceased (if any) and death certificate issued by official authorities.

Note:

(1) The declarant has to submit the authenticated copy of the death certificate. If the declarant submits a photocopy of the death certificate, its original copy should be presented for verification. In addition, If above-mentioned documents are not written in Chinese, Portuguese or English, applicants are required to produce an official translation.
(2) If a Macao resident identity card holder passed away in Macao, the Civil Affairs Registry will collect the Macao resident identity card of the person concerned and notify DSI of the death of the deceased. Therefore, there is no need to declare the death of the deceased to DSI. Nevertheless, the deceased’s relatives can still submit the death certificate issued by the Civil Affairs Registry to DSI if necessary.
