Electronic ID

Types and Validity of eID

ID cards and certificates have a five-year validity period. An identity card issued to a person above the age of 70 has a 40-year validity term.

Identity card for minors under the age of eighteen

  • Identify cards for children under the age of 18 include an identification certificate that can be used to verify identity electronically in numerous procedures relating to primary and secondary education. The card can also be used to cross state boundaries within the European Union and other nations that allow it.

Identity card for those over the age of 16 who have been granted permission to marry by a court in non-contentious proceedings

  • An identification and signature certificate is included in identity cards issued to people who have achieved the age of 16 and have been allowed to marry by a court in a non-contentious procedure.

Identity card for persons from 18 to 70 years

  • For everyone aged 18 to 70, an identification card is required.

Identity card for people over 70 years old

  • Over the age of 70, people can get an ID card with or without a certificate. After the 5-year certificate expires, a person over the age of 70 who acquires an identification card with certificates will be allowed to use it for identity verification, but not for electronic verification signatures, nor will it be able to use its ID card to create a qualified electronic signature.
  • If a person wants to use an identification card to ensure electronic proof of their identity and make a qualified electronic signature (as an electronic document) after the certificate expires, they must apply for a new identity card.
