In line with its plan to develop all ID card services, the third and final stage of a project to issue the new and revamped identity cards for residents in the Kingdom of Bahrain will start from Sunday, 21st June 2020. 

The Authority intends to make government transactions available for all by deploying modern technologies to reduce expenditures and improve performance.

It worth noting that Information & eGovernment Authority (iGA) launched the first stage of the ID card development project in January 2019, which was limited to Bahrainis new borns, and the second stage in May 2019, which covered any issuance of Bahrainis’ smart cards.

Authority confirmed that the revamped ID cards will not come with an increase in issuance fees, nor will its holders have to replace their currently valid cards which will continue to be accepted for all government and private transactions until their expiration dates.
