SULAIMANI — The office of the General Directorate of Iraqi Nationality in the Kurdistan Region said on Friday (August 23) that the citizens can now complete applications for national ID cards online, before picking them up from the local office.

The directorate said that citizens can visit its website and bring the filled-in form to the nearest national ID office to complete the procedure.

The new service is a part of an attempt to digitize and streamline the work of ministries and make it easier for the public to complete basic administrative tasks. Additionally, it is part of a shift toward using the national ID card as the primary form of identification, instead of the civil status card or the Iraqi national certificate.
