I am trying to apply for ESTA. I am Japanese living in Mexico, with a permanent visa.
- Is the permanent visa a National identity card?
- If yes, there is no expiration date on the permanent visa. What should I put in the form? Would it be 0000?
The ESTA application is referring to national identity cards as listed in this Wikipedia page, not visas.
More specifically, Mexico does not have a national identity card system, and your permanent visa for Mexico does not count as one.
