CAPE TOWN - People applying for identity documents for the first time could be the first to receive new smart cards, when Home Affairs rolls out its pilot project in six months.

Home Affairs Minister Nkosazana Dlamini-Zuma showed off her smart card on Wednesday, along with machines that will be used to read and verify information.

The card, which will replace the green ID documents, will have a microchip embedded in it storing fingerprints and other means of identifying citizens.

Dlamini-Zuma said before giving South Africans modernised smartcards, their offices will have to be modernised as well.

“Everything we do is captured live and transmitted electronically for printing…Everything, your fingerprints and signature will be done online.”
