Identity card; blocking and unblocking the online ID function in the event of loss

You can have the online ID function of your ID card blocked either by calling the telephone blocking hotline or at the ID card authority. If you find your ID card again, you can have it unblocked at the ID card office.


Special notes

If the eID function is blocked via the hotline, you are also obliged to report the loss to the ID card authority (see "Related topics").

Required documents

  • You will need the blocking information specified in the PIN letter, in particular the blocking password, for blocking.
