ID Express Service

This optional service reduces the processing time and allows you to receive the ID within 15 working days from the nearest OMT location.

The Lebanese identity card is an official document issued by the Ministry of Interior and Municipalities. It is compulsory for every Lebanese citizen, as it constitutes a document of identification and verification.

Based on the obligation of identification for every Lebanese citizen, and in view of facilitating the affairs of those who visit the Civil Registries every day to apply for an ID card issuance or renewal, the Ministry of Interior and Municipalities - Directorate General of Civil Status in cooperation with OMT launched the ID Express service.
