Business Nigeria: National e-ID Card to be Used as Int'l Passport ?



✅ NEW - car park, swimming pool, 24 hours light/security and more.
The Federal government is reportedly pushing for international communities to accept the use of the new e-ID as a travel document as it contains a travel applet, ThisDay reports. Excerpts:

The National Identity Management Commission (NIMC) is pushing for the use of the new national e-Identity card as travel document.

One of the applets imbedded in the card has all the travel details and requirements contained in Nigeria’s e-passport and it is known as Travel Applet, so it could easily be used as travel document with the approval of the international community.

Head, Card Management Services, NIMC, Mr. Tunji Durodola, told THISDAY that the back of the NIMC eID Card contains three lines called MRZ Lines (Machine Readable Zone) just like the Passport.
