Minister of Home Affairs Naledi Pandor has
made an appeal to those who applied for a Smart ID Card to collect them.
The department says since the roll-out of
the cards in February this year a total of 100 000 smart ID cards
applications have been received and processed.
Minister Pandor said the department has
been sending message to those who need to collect their cards at the nearest
Home Affairs office.
Departmental Spokesperson Ronnie Mamoepa said
100 000 smart ID cards processed only 58 715
have been collected with 41 285 uncollected smart ID’s in Home Affairs offices
around the country.
“Accordingly, we encourage those who have not collected their IDs to do so as a priority.
advise all citizens who have applied for the new Smart ID cards to visit
offices of application to collect them. In this
context, we wish to inform the public that it takes 10 days only to process a
smart ID card application and delivery to the applicant.” Mamoepa added.
