Successful Completion of Free National Identity Card Issuance in Chad: A Step towards Enhanced Identification

In a press briefing held on August 2, 2023, Amouna Ali Sougui, the Director-General of the National Agency for Secure Documents (ANATS), provided an update on the status of the free issuance of identity cards.

Transitioning Towards Enhanced Identification

The initiative, declared by the transitional President on November 22, 2022, offering free national identity card issuance, has concluded as of this Wednesday. According to the ANATS Director, the provision of free identity cards has significantly encouraged Chadians to enroll in the program. During the period of gratuity, a remarkable 662,292 individuals enrolled, resulting in the issuance of 486,741 identity cards over an 8-month period. “As of August 2, 2023, more than 56,000 national identity cards are pending production, with over 200,000 identity card applications in the validation process,” stated Amouna Ali Sougui.

Acknowledging Progress and Future Endeavors

Throughout this duration, the National Agency for Secure Documents received a staggering total of 735,264 national identity card requests. Sougui expressed her gratitude, saying, “We wish to take this opportunity to extend our appreciation to the highest authorities for enabling a substantial number of Chadians to access the national identity card free of charge.”

While celebrating this encouraging achievement, the Director-General of the National Agency for Secure Documents emphasized that there is more to be done. She urged every Chadian to participate in the enrollment process, highlighting the importance of obtaining a national identification number. This unique number is securely registered in the national biometric population registry and serves as the sole means to acquire the secure identity document.
