Resident identity card

Individual registrants who use their resident identity cards for real-name verification must enter and submit all the required information by referring to the example shown in the following figure.
Note
  • In normal cases when you upload a file for your resident identity card, you need to only upload a scanned copy or a color photo of the side that contains the profile picture. In special cases, such as in the following scenarios, you also need to upload a scanned copy or a color photo of the side that contains the national emblem: your permanent residence is changed, your resident identity card expires, you lose the original resident identity card and reapply for a new one, and the verification authority requires the supplemental file. If you need to provide both sides of your resident identity card, combine the two scanned copies or color photos into one file.
