New electronic identity cards to be rolled out

29 May 2015

New TRNC electronic identity cards are now available.

A ceremony was held at the Interior Ministry where the first e-identity cards were handed out yesterday and President Akinci, Parliamentary Speaker Siber, PM Yorgancioglu, former Presidents Eroglu and Talat received their e-ID cards.

Minister Ulucay said they aimed to give e-IDs to people who applied from Monday onwards. The project, which is being run in cooperation with the Turkish Ministry for Transportation, Maritime and Communication, will allow people to use the E-state, E-trade and E-banking systems once their signatures are recorded electronically.

Those wanting to renew their IDs in exchange for the e-ID card will have to pay 69TL.
