Application for new identity cards underway

Khanh Hoa Police’s Department Administrative Management on Social Security (Khanh Hoa Public Security) started to receive applications for issuance of new identity (ID) cards at military agencies in Khanh Hoa Province on December 31, 2021.
 
Implementation roadmap 
 
These days, at the hall of Khanh Hoa Police's Department of Fire and Rescue (Khanh Hoa Public Security), staff of Khanh Hoa Police’s Department Administrative Management on Social Security, are busy working on laptops, cameras, fingerprint scanners, etc to collect information for applications for new ID cards. The information collection procedures for the issuance of new ID cards have been simplified. Applicants just need to provide information about their names and numbers of ID cards to be entered in the ID card issuance software system based on the use of information provided by citizens in the national population database.

According to Senior Lieutenant-Colonel Le Phuong Hong, Chief of the Police’s Department Administrative Management on Social Security; the acceptance of applications for new ID cards is the first step towards the issuance of chip-based ID cards. In the 1st phase, apart from military agencies, the service will be for State agencies and socio-political organizations.
 
Khanh Hoa Public Security has been provided 2 ID card making machines by the Ministry of Public Security. Besides the prioritized groups mentioned above, the service will widely run across the province when sufficient machines are provided. The ID card service will reach communes, wards and townships with simplified procedures to provide convenience for residents but requirements for accuracy and security are still met.   
                                              
Data integration and security
 
According to the leader of the Police’s Department Administrative Management on Social Security, chip-based ID cards improve security with large storage space, enabling many accompanying apps such as digital signature, anthropometry, one time password and compatibility with private and pubic services.
 
Remarkably, chip-based ID cards store sufficient information so they can be used in transactions. Besides, amendment to the cards can be made more flexibly. Data on the chips can be accessed without Internet connection, allowing quick and easy identification as well as preventing identity fraud.
 
The chips on the ID cards are in compliance with security regulations of the world and Vietnam. The embedded chip can perform digital signatures to prevent counterfeit, ensuring the reliability and security, especially in financial transactions. 
 
The chips store citizens' data with the aim to provide convenience for citizens to conduct administrative transactions and use as travel documents as well as improve the efficiency of the e-Government or digital Government.
