Europe-wide recognition of online ID function completed

Germany is the first European Union Member States to complete the process of notifying the electronic identification function of German ID documents. This means that the eID function of Germany’s national ID card and electronic residence permit will be recognized across Europe for electronic identification in digital administrative proceedings as of 29 September 2018.

The German National Identity Card

Germany's national ID card is among the world's most advanced identification documents.
It allows you to perform many business and government transactions easily and safely online. See one example in the Federal Ministry of the Interior's information video on the online car registration with the German National ID card.
