The new New National Identification card is made of a durable polycarbonate substrate and will eventually replace the ID cards made of Teslin.
This new National Identification card incorporates a sophisticated array of security features, ensuring multi-layered protection against the threat of counterfeit and fraud. Some of these security features are visible to the naked eye. Other security features are visible with the assistance of a magnifying glass and UV light, whilst some security features are accessible only under forensic conditions and using specialised technology.
According to the Elections and Boundaries Commission website, on the front of the new national identification card there are security features that can be seen with the naked eye and those that can been seen with the assistance of a magnifying glass.
The image of the registrant is in black and white. Under the main photo, the words of the National Anthem are visible. The secure embossing design also depicts the multi-cultural facets of our music, for example, there is a man playing a steel-pan and three dancers, all laser etched onto the front of the card. These features are visible with the use of a magnifying glass.
