The Department of Home Affairs initiated the Smart ID Card which was launched on the 18th July 2013 to replace the existing barcoded Identity Document. The card has enhanced security features to assist citizens in the protection of their identity and citizenry. There is now a call to encourage people to go and apply for their Smart ID Cards as part of a strategy to ensure the discontinuation of the green Identity Document. When you apply for your Smart ID Card for the first time you must be 16 years old, take your birth certificate and you must be accompanied by a parent in possession of their ID book or Smart ID Card. If you are renewing and moving over to the Smart ID Card you will need your green ID Document, or an affidavit if your ID document is lost; proof of residence using a utility bill, or provide your residential address; take your marriage certificate, if married; your divorce decree, if divorced. A fee of R 140 is required, but if you are over 60 years old there is no payment required to have this done. The offices of the Department of Home Affairs in Mossel Bay and George are efficient and the process is completely paperless.
