To better serve New Yorkers and limit extended wait times, walk-ins are now welcome on a limited basis. However, appointments are still highly recommended. Walk-in applicants will be reviewed by IDNYC staff. Based on staff discretion, if there is not enough room to process applicants on the date of their walk-in, they will be given a convenient appointment for another date. To schedule an appointment, click here. More appointments will be added as they become available.
