# What is my “local ID / citizenship number” as a US citizen?

I'm applying for a visa to enter China.

One of the questions asked is my "Local ID / Citizenship number". What would that be as a US citizen?

1.9 身份证/公民证号码
Local ID / Citizenship number


Visa Application Form of the People’s Republic of China

Edit: There is another box for passport number

1.11 护照号码
Passport number

• I guess the most important rule is to be consistent about whatever you put there... – Mehrdad Jun 21 '18 at 0:40
• Wouldn't it make more sense to just contact them and ask? You can't be the first American citizen who doesn't know what to put here... – Mehrdad Jun 21 '18 at 5:41

Some websites suggest putting your state driver's license or state ID number there.

• State driver's license number worked for me when I applied. – ajd Jun 21 '18 at 2:29

For use in a foreign country, I would put my passport number.

• There is another section on the Chinese visa application for passport number. – ajd Jun 21 '18 at 2:29
