Greek ID Cards, Driver’s License Seen On Mobile Phones by Easter

December 31, 2021

ATHENS – Speeding the process into digitization, Greece will have a platform ready by Easter, 2022 for people to download a version of their identity card and driver’s license onto cell phones, having made one available for COVID-19 vaccination certificates.

Digital Governance Minister Kyriakos Pierrakakis told SKAI TV that, “We aim to have the biggest part of this work at the end of the first quarter of 2022, surely before Easter we will have these changes in terms of the new identity card … and in terms of the driving license.”

Currently, only part of the ID can be put on cell phones now to help people get into stores easier where showing a vaccination certificate or proof of recovery from the Coronavirus is required.

The new service will allow citizens to use their digital ID in any transaction with the state or institution requiring identification, said Kathimerini and

Pierr akakis said the partial ID was downloaded 608,000 times in two days.
