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.
In addition, Mr. Pierrakakis stated that the bill on emerging technologies will be submitted soon. This will include the inclusion of the identity card on mobiles, real estate transfers and the Disability Certification, which is very important for people with disabilities.

Furthermore, the minister announced the installation of a supercomputer in Lavrio, while also extolling the quality of the National Technical University of Athens, but also of the Greek engineers in general, who help to a great extent
Regarding the next moves, Mr. Pierrakakis noted that he will visit the mayor of Athens Costas Bakogiannis, in order for the latter to present his own digital technology program. 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.
