Lost or Stolen e-ID Card
In the case of a lost or stolen e-ID Card, one must first file a police report and then re-apply for a new identity card at the Identity Card Unit.
Those reporting a lost or stolen e-ID Card, must:
- Fill in Form ID 10 – Application for a Maltese Identity Card;
- Submit a Police report, clearly stating their e-ID card number.
Whenever issuing a new e-ID card in replacement of a lost or stolen e-ID card, a €22 fee is charged.
If the lost or stolen identity card is not an e-ID card, the applicant needs to duly fill in Form ID 10 section D, which should include (i) a declaration by an authorized person verifying that he/she knows the applicant and (ii) a passport-sized photo of the applicant signed by the same authorized witness certifying the applicant’s identity. If the lost or stolen identity card was already an e-ID card, then there is no need to fill in Form ID 10 section D.
The applicant would also need to apply for:
- e-ID virtual account;
- Senior Citizen Card (if over the age of 60 years).
