As Poslovni Dnevnik writes, Ines Papes from AKD, the company which creates Croatian ID cards and the like, has talked more about the new way of doing things at the Velika Gorica police station. The brand new digital identity card project was presented at the Velika Gorica police station recently, and a kiosk has been set up on the station premises where people can activate their e-identity cards and request their own mobile digital identity to make getting administrative tasks done painlessly.

“The project was financed by European Union (EU) funds, and we’d like to invite people to come and activate their ID cards, and all those who haven’t done so yet can do so at the police station. They’ll need their ID card and PIN envelope. If they don’t have their PIN envelope, they can get it free of charge at the counters of the police department. When using the console, which was set up by AKD, they can activate their ID cards, and once they activate them, they can also download the Certilia application for free on their ID cards, and that’s where they’ll get their mobile digital identity from,” explained Ines Papes from AKD, as reported by Vecernji list.

“People are now being offered over a hundred services, on the e-Citizens (e-Gradjani) platform, they can now use the application to sign all their documents that they used to have to come and sign physically. Now they can do it quickly and easily using just their mobile phones,” they stated from AKD.

“The most interesting thing about it all is that they only need to come to the counter once every five years, because that’s when their identity card expires. They can send their application for their Croatian driving license or passport from their home and receive it at their home address,” concluded Papes.
