National identity cards

Creating the bridge between physical ID documents and governmental eServices

National identity cards IDEMIA

Identity documents, amongst which national identity cards are one of the most common forms, allow people to exist in the eyes of society. Citizens use them whenever they need to prove who they are or where they come from, to fulfil their civic duties or cross borders. Without a legal identity document, citizens cannot access basic human rights such as healthcare, education, social welfare and the right to work, and yet 1.1 billion people still do not have one today.

For governments, who have the ultimate responsibility to provide their citizens with a proof of identity, offering them with robust and long-lasting documents to protect their identities is crucial. Ensuring that civilians can rely on these secure documents to conveniently access their services, in the physical and digital worlds, is also a top priority.

IDEMIA has decades of experience in providing a complete range of identity documents. We are committed to citizens and governments alike to issue modern and reliable ID documents that comply with international and/or local regulations. Specialized in helping governments modernize their public infrastructures, we deliver electronic ID cards, enabling citizens to securely access eServices.
