First New Identity Card Issued for Newborn ‘Sultan’

As part of implementing the first phase of issuing the entirely, newly-revamped identity card; the Information & eGovernment Authority (iGA) handed over the first issued identity card to the parent of the newborn ‘Sultan’ who is the first Bahraini newborn to receive the new revamped ID during the first phase dedicated to the Bahraini newborns of 2019 only.

The Information & eGovernment Authority ID Card & Population Registry Director Shaikh Subah bin Hamad Al Khalifa received Sultan’s father to hand over the first issued identity card at the Muharraq Seef Mall Identity Card Center to congratulate him.

It is worth noting that iGA has announced – during the current month – that it began issuing the new identity cards which keep abreast with the latest international technologies and in accordance with the international standards of ICAO. The ID cards are also better in quality of production to resist and reduce damage and attain clearer data such as change of font and position of ID’s expiry date. A new field has also been added for special needs versus the previous card issued by the Ministry of Labour & Social Development.

The issuance process is carried-out in phases comprising the first current phase the Bahraini newborns of 2019 only followed by the citizens and residents in the second phase for renewing or replacing lost or damaged ID cards. Noting that holders of current valid identity cards are not required to replace their present IDs.
