The spokesperson for the General Directorate of Passports, Captain Nasser Al-Otaibi, explained that a Muqeem digital ID will not be “compulsory” for current residents.
Captain Al-Otaibi indicated that the resident has the option to keep the printed identity or carry the digital ID.
In an intervention with the “Akhbarakom” program on “Al Majd” channel, he indicated that the digital ID makes it easy to identify the resident’s identity without returning to the original.
The General Directorate of Passports recently launched the Muqeem digital ID on the Absher Individuals app.
