Can I give up or cancel my PESEL number?

The provisions of the Act on the Population Register, which regulates the PESEL number rules, prohibit the deletion of data and entries stored in the PESEL register.

On the other hand, the provisions of the law on assistance to Ukrainian citizens in connection with an armed conflict in the territory of that country, which could possibly include provisions excluding such a ban, do not provide for the possibility of removing or canceling the PESEL number.
