Identity cards

In November 2008, as part of the National Identity Service, the first identity cards were introduced for foreign nationals living in Britain. Later in 2009, the first identity cards will be introduced for British and EEA citizens. Find out more about what this will mean for you, and how you can register your interest and keep up to date with the rollout of identity cards.
