Identity Card Issuance

Identity cards are produced using highly specialised technology and equipment. A visual check is performed on every ID to spot obvious flaws. Encrypted information is verified using a QR code and chip reader. The ID cards are then issued to the applicant once biometrics are verified to mitigate any risk of identity theft.
