Everyone will need to have photo taken for new ID card
The Central Electoral Board (JCE) has announced that the 18-month campaign to renew ID cards (cedulas) in the Dominican Republic will reach seven million people. A promotional campaign is starting this month to provide details on the new ID card that reportedly includes 20 security mechanisms, a non-visual chip and a barcode. The card is scheduled to begin to be issued at the end of the first quarter of the year, said JCE president Roberto Rosario. The first ID card will be free but everyone will have to have a photo taken and supply data at 146 centers and mobile units that will be installed nationwide. The cards will be issued to citizens, legally resident foreigners and minors.
