Labelled as Africa’s biggest success story, Rwanda has certainly found its place in today’s tech paced world. As the forerunners in id card innovation and implementation, plastic id cards are an essential facet of Rwandan life.
As a member of ID4Africa (a movement that aims to provide a legal, sustainable form of identification to all in Africa), Rwanda hosted a milestone annual meeting in 2016, demonstrating the success and progress of the movement.
Foreigners and Nationals alike require identification cards. All foreigners applying for residency have to carry electronic photo id cards. Similarly, the Belgian embassy and career consulates issues electronic id cards to their employees and Belgians listed in their population registers.
2016 saw the introduction of the eID, a government issued document allowing for both standard and online identification.
In 2017, Rwandan officials announced a joint project between the German owned ADC (African Development Cooperation) and South Africa’s Simtel (a company that operates Rwanda’s payment system) that would integrate the national id cards with the financial structure, enabling individuals to access banking services with their id cards; the same id cards could then also be used for shopping.
