An e-ID account is a requirement for accessing government online services. The process for obtaining an account involves verification of the applicant’s identity by the Identity Card Unit (ICU). Upon verification, an activation link is sent to the applicant. For those who already have a valid e-ID or e-Residence Permit card but have not yet activated their e-ID account, assistance is available by contacting the e-ID Section.
