Government to introduce electronic ID cards

The Hungarian government is planning to replace current identity cards with electronic ID cards that would enable carriers to do fingerprint identification and use electronic signatures, Hungarian economic daily Napi Gazdaság reported today.

The government justified the need for a new ID system as the “e-card” they are proposing would make everyday life easier for Hungarians. One single card could store all the data a Hungarian would need to manage any official matters, even matters regarding national health care or taxation.

As a result, the proposed e-card could combine many official ID documents into one.
