Online applications will not be processed until all required documentation has been uploaded and the appropriate fee is received by the County of San Diego Emergency Medical Services.

The application process may take up to forty-five (45) days from the date a completed application is received. Once your application has been processed, you will receive an email notifying you that you may log in to your profile to print your County of San Diego MICN ID card.
