In the past, people had to submit a copy of resident registration in person when they applied for services like a bank loan, child care benefits, a new passport and senior citizen pension benefits. However, service providers may check the resident registration information of applicants directly upon their agreement to do so, and so there is no need for applicants to submit the document.
