What to write in the box "National identity number, where applicable" of Schengen Visa's Application Form. Is it the same as ordinary passport's serial number ?

This question has been asked before and already has an answer. If those answers do not fully address your question, please ask a new question.

  • Search for "National Identity Number + <Name of your country>" on google to find out if citizens of the country issuing your passport have any. It should not be the passport's serial number as it changes whenever you get a new passport. A national identity number does normally not change, otherwise it wouldn't identify you. – DCTLib Oct 29 '17 at 18:01
  • So it identifies the country, not me, yes ? – David Tsaturyan Oct 29 '17 at 18:03

    @DavidTsaturyan The national ID number identifies you as a person – Crazydre Oct 29 '17 at 18:08

    No, it identifies you. It is assigned to you by your country of citizenship. Many countries have no such identification system, while others treat the number with such caution that they do not include it on passports. For example, on a South African passport, there is a field called Identity no. / No d'identité; that's the number you should enter here if you are South African. If your passport bears no such number, you should leave the box empty. – phoog Oct 29 '17 at 18:09

    Ok, thank you. I think there is no such a thing in Armenian passports. – David Tsaturyan Oct 29 '17 at 18:19
