Citizens will not need to bring their ID and driver’s license with them in a few days from today.

This is because they will be able to have these documents – electronically – on their mobile phone, as announced by the Minister of State and Digital Governance Kyriakos Pierrakakis, speaking to OT FORUM 2 and the panel “Intelligent, Sustainable Cities – Intelligent Citizens”.

According to the Minister, while having the identity card and the driver’s license on our mobile, passports will not be available, as this is a travel document, something that requires bilateral agreements between states.

Mr Pierrakakis was very specific that the new service will be available from the afternoon of July 27, according to the current planning of the ministry.

The specific program concerning the local government (designed by Mr. Livanios) amounts to 320 million euros, of which 230 million come from the NSRF and the remaining 90 million from the Recovery Fund.
