Default ID Card

Can anyone tell me where I need to go to get an ID card? Is it the same building as NIS cards near the embassy?

you go to the NIS building opposite the Fairchild Bus Terminal in Bridgetown. ground floor. (unless I'm completely out of date).. This is where I renewed mine and applied and received my childrens cards a few years ago

you just need to make sure you have all the needed documents and photo's before you go.

Do id cards need to be renewed? I didn't realise there was an expiry date on them.

I think it depends on why you were issued the ID card ie a 3 year work permit will expire after the 3 years. Dont know if residential ones run out but i guess they might do as i deffo look different now than when i was in my 20s - lot better looking now yadda yadda yadda lol

ok.. well my husband had his for like 30 years with his "16" year old self on it.. so.. he had to get a new one. The one I got in 1992, when I first moved here, was tattered, so I got a new one.. I think Renewed was the wrong word. Re-done would have been better.. but having said that.. I guess if you only have a work permit for so many years, I would guess, as Dipity has said, the card would/should have an expire date on it.

Thanks Sunnie and Dipidy, that makes sense. Phew, no more newer "older" photographs for me then . I hope you're both doing well.

Thanks guys, I have since found out that every Tuesday evening, Roland Edwards school in St Peter does the applications too. I just go there with my paperwork, my photo is taken there and then and then pick it up the following week. Saves a trip into town which is good for me. I am going on Tuesday - will let you know how I get on as this will be handy for all of us that live 'up north'.

I understand that my ID card is only valid for the length of my 'status'.

That's handy - it would be nice to know if they dealt with any other transactions at Roland Edwards School! All this talk about ID cards made me check mine last night and there was no expiry date on it.

Interesting Vicky work and reside permits expire??? i would have thought they would be indefinite until your interview - how long are they giving before expiry?
