        1. No, because for the mobile ID you need to enter the Serial Number of civil ID. A person with an expired civil ID can use his old civil ID’s Serial Number. But in your case, you do not have any previous civil ID so just wait for your civil ID.

    I downloaded the application and followed the instructions precisely but it give me a message of “ an error has occurred…” I tried many times in different days still the same issue.
