The registration form must be accompanied by a copy of the valid national identity card or passport. Salaried workers must provide a copy of their employment contract, while the self-employed must provide a copy of their business permit. Non-working residents are required to provide a declaration or proof of sufficient resources and proof that they and their family are affiliated to a health insurance scheme.
