Why do you have to be fingerprinted EVERY time you renew your civil ID. WTF! This is stupid even by local standards. Fingerprints DO NOT CHANGE!

No, you don't have to get finger printed every time you renew your civil id. They only do it the first time.

I wasn't asking if you have to do it every time you renew.  I know for a FACT that you do.  I had to do it again along with my wife and mother.  So again, this is not the question.  I just want to know what is the logiic behind it.

Oh and mark, don't chose a best answer for my question, especially that the answer is patently false.

Agreed. Had to do for my wife's residency renewal for last two years. Not sure why.

it's not false, I've renewed my civil id for years now and never got fingerprinted. The process to renew is done online and then you go collect the civil id. You don't even interact with anyone yet alone get your prints retaken.

Renewed it twice, never had to re-fingerprint. Same applies to my wife's civil ID.

Are you sure you aren't on some security list?

Been here very many years and have a feeling I was fingerprinted last 2 x also.  I am on a dependent visa and renew yearly.

Yesterday I went to renew my wife's residency (article 22), they asked for her to go give her finger prints although we've done that 3 years ago. Apparently there is some change in the system
