I have to renew my Albanian passport.
As I understood, the new passport serial number will differ from the one in the old document.
But I'm wondering if the personal number changes too.
My logic says it doesn't, but does anyone know for sure?

In section 11 on the data page of the Albanian passport (nr. personal/personal no.) you will find your 'Numri i Identitetit' or abbreviated NID. It is a registration number assigned to you as a person by the Albanian authorities and not related to the passport per se. If you get a new passport, the NID will not change.
The passport number is individual to each passport; the citizen ID number is individual to each citizen, and never changes under normal circumstances.
SO the passport number will be different, but your citizen ID number the same
Since I can't find an official answer for my nationality, from wikipedia link and from the majority of the other countries, being that the personal number is calculated using some formulae, I take that it does not change when renewing the passport.
