The Electoral and Boundaries Commission (EBC) said today that holders of the current Barbados identification card will soon be able to register for the new National ID card via an online portal, or at any one of the 24 registration centres across the island.
Applicants will be required to present their birth certificate, or a valid Barbados passport, and any other documents in support of their current name, according to a media release from the EBC.
Additionally, applicants who were not born in Barbados, will be required to present their immigration status document and/or the immigration status stamp in their passport.
ID card holders are required to present the original (or certified copy) and one photocopy of each document. Unless lost, the existing ID card should also be presented to facilitate easy registration.
Registrants are advised to get their documents together in preparation for being registered for the new ID card.
