Expired ID cards valid until June 2021

The Elections and Boundaries Commission is advising that all national identification cards issued by the Commission, which are currently expired or due to expire in 2020, will now be valid until June 30th, 2021.

EBC said the extension has become necessary to facilitate an anticipated increased level of renewals and the introduction of a new format identification card under new protocols, which are required for health and safety considerations under the current Pandemic situation.

This extension of the expiry date of identification cards is instituted in accordance with Registration Rules 31 (5) and (6) of the Representation of the People Act, Chapter 2:01.and is a further extension to that, which was implemented earlier  this year.
