Mobile-ID certificates are valid for 5 years and are issued together with a mobile-ID SIM card. Remember that you can change the PINs associated with your mobile-ID, but you cannot renew your mID certificates. This means that you will need a new mID SIM card to continue using your mobile-ID when certificates expire or when you change your mobile service provider!
