Monaco announced the implementation of an electronic national Identity card that is compliant with the European standards ICAO-EAC and IAS-ECC.
Oberthur Technologies developed the system for Monaco, with enrolment and personalization, as well as an issuance system of the electronic document to the citizen.
Since March 30 each Monegasque citizen has been able to apply for and receive a new identity card on the same day. Each card is delivered with a Stentor, a protection device that prevents from reading information on the chip.
The Monegasque passport and the identity card have been standardized in order to offer a maximal interoperability between all Monaco identity documents.
