    what if I forgot my TIN? Can i still apply for a UMID card ? tnx

    • Hi Tessa,

      Look at the requirements on item #1. If you can bring primary requirements then you won’t need a TIN card anymore. In the case that you don’t have any of those, there are other 12 IDs that are acknowledged. Just be sure you are able to bring all those prior to applying for a UMID
