National Number (for children at or below 12 years of age)

The National Number is a unique reference number assigned currently to Sudanese citizens at or below the age of 12 and is used to access the database of an applicant whose information is registered at the General Administration of Civil Registry.

  • Presentation of the witness’ identification documents (Passport, National Number document) who typically should be an individual from the father’s side (father, sibling, uncle, aunt, cousin).

  • Child’s Sudanese certificate of birth.
  • Identification documents of both parents (Passport, National Number document).
  • Marriage certificate of parents.
  • Applicant’s blood type.

The National Number is issued free of charge the first time. Re-issuing due to loss or other reasons entails a $25 fee.
