THE FOREIGNERS’ police departments will start issuing new electronic IDs, so-called eDoPP cards, for foreigners living in Slovakia. Similar to the electronic IDs issued for Slovak citizens as of December 1, 2013, the cards will be used for authentication in electronic communication.

“It will be possible to record to the electronic chip in the eDoPP card all data to the extent and under the conditions that are set by the rules regulating the residence of foreigners in Slovakia and electronic signatures,” the Interior Ministry said, as quoted by the TASR newswire. “The validity of the card will depend on the purpose of the residence permit the foreigner gets.”

Foreigners will pay €4.50 to receive a new eDoPP card.

Electronic card holders will, if they want to use the electronic services, request activation of the chip. This means they will choose their own security code, the so-called BOK, which will be used to confirm the identity of person using the card, the ministry explained, as reported by TASR.
