If you need to apply for a new card or a replacement card, please make an appointment and complete your application at an Enrollment Center. We have temporarily disabled starting new and replacement applications online due to reduced capacities at our Enrollment Centers. If you need to renew your card, please submit a renewal application online. Services at Enrollment Centers are being offered by appointment only. We apologize for the inconvenience and thank you for your patience.

You can now fill out and submit your IDNYC application form online before you go to an enrollment center. This will make your appointment even faster and easier!
