It was time for our CNIs to go digital. Deployed today in the Oise, the new digital identity card it should become general in France as of next August. With its credit card format and electronic components, this new official document, awaited for several years, was formalized on Sunday March 14 by decree.

A QR code on the back of the card will allow you to include all the information on the document (identity, gender, date and place of birth).
