The Public Authority for Civil Information has succeeded in attracting 1.650 million citizens and residents to participate in the “My Identity” application to conduct transactions, and to achieve the goal of transitioning to e-government.
Informed sources in the authority considered that the Authority’s success in registering this number of citizens and residents in “My Identity” came in implementation of the Cabinet’s decision to oblige government agencies to approve it when conducting all types of transactions, without the presence of the original civil ID, which saved effort, time and security in Conducting transactions by automatically linking those bodies with the Public Authority for Civil Information, confirming that the general approach and strategy of the authority is to completely dispense with the regular card, and to completely rely on my “identity” in the future.
The sources indicated that the subscriber to the application can travel to the Gulf countries, through "my identity", and without the presence of a passport or original card for citizens, calling on everyone to benefit from the application.
The authority stated that it receives those who wish to receive the civil ID from 8 in the morning until 4 in the evening, during the blessed month of Ramadan. On normal days, delivery lasts until six in the evening.
