Croatia will launch electronic ID cards with facial and fingerprint biometric data stored on a secure chip next year, Vecernji List reports.
Fingerprints from both hands will be stored on the chip, along with the facial image.
Biometric Update reports the mobile device-based digital credential will allow individuals to manage their data and verify their identity electronically.
Total Croatia News reports the ID will bear the insignia of the Republic of Croatia printed in negative in a blue rectangle and surrounded by twelve yellow stars.
According to reports, the e-ID will not bear an extra cost and can be activated from a government website.
