Remember your UNHCR Number

Wednesday / 07 December 2022

Please ensure that you remember your UNHCR file number and individual number. It is important to memorize your UNHCR numbers, or record them in a convenient place, in case you lose your UNHCR document or authorities ask for your details. Knowing your UNHCR file number and individual number assists UNHCR with the verification of your identity.

We advise all refugees and asylum-seekers to take a photo of your UNHCR document and keep it stored on your phone for easy access.

Please also remember to keep your UNHCR documents with you at all times.
