Certified copy of ID in your branch
For whom and preconditions
This service is only provided in self-operated branches.
Here’s how it works
Request a certification of authenticity of your ID in your nearest branch.
The Swiss Post employee checks the ID, makes a copy and, once verified, stamps it with “Original document seen by” (surname, first name and signature of the Swiss Post employee) and the branch’s date stamp.
You receive the physical confirmation immediately.
