The teams working in the Identification Centers distributed throughout Tocantins are working at full speed to ensure increasingly agile and qualified service to people seeking the new National Identity Card (CIN). Since January 12th, there have been 10,179 consultations across the State, 2,416 in Palmas, 1,799 in the Araguaína region, 1,365 in the Araguatins region and 1,243 in the Paraíso region.
The new wallet is the safest document in Brazil and one of the safest in the world. It has easy elements to verify authenticity and a QR Code, which can be read by cell phone, allowing any citizen to check whether the wallet has been stolen or lost. The CIN is also digital and is included in the GOV.BR application.
The CPF number becomes the Brazilian’s national registration number, which means that the citizen will continue to have the same identification number in any state of the Federation. The CIN also establishes easy identification of people with special needs.
“Old identity cards will have a period of 10 years to be exchanged and we have all the planning being carried out so that this exchange occurs quickly, according to the operational capacity of each center. The services have been a success and we are very happy with the results”, highlighted the director of the Identification Institute, Elaine Monteiro Tonon.
The first copy of the paper and digital document is free and when searching for the service, citizens must present originals and copies of their birth or marriage certificate and proof of CPF registration. Interested parties are advised to find out, in their city centre, whether it is necessary to take a 3×4 photo, as some units already offer the service.
SSP/TO reinforces that to access the document, in Palmas, it is necessary to make an appointment through the secretariat’s website (https://iito.ssp.to.gov.br/servicos). Scheduling is weekly and takes place every Friday, starting at 2 pm. At this time, new spaces are released for scheduling and subsequent service, for the following week. In Gurupi (3312-6248) and Araguaína (63 3414-8957) scheduling can be done by phone. There, the Identification Centers are located at Pronto’s headquarters.
In other cities in the State, interested parties can go to the Identification Centers in person.
