  • The application can be made by the supervisor, the authorized representative or by the person required to provide identification himself/herself.
  • The card holder receives a certificate stating that he/she is exempt from the identification requirement.
  • The certificate is generally issued indefinitely and without a photograph and contains all data (except eye color and size) that would have been entered in the identity card.
