The source noted that it is planned to issue new identity cards in Azerbaijan from January 2018, and given the fact that e-signatures will be integrated into IDs, citizens will be able to get them for free.
“The validity of e-signature certificate in new IDs will be 5 years. Upon completion of the specified period, it will only be necessary to extend the certificate’s validity period. There will be no fees for integration of an e-signature in the ID card. That is, digital signatures will be issued free of charge,” the source said.
E-signature simplifies the access of citizens to electronic services of state institutions that are available on the Electronic Government Portal. Currently, 353 e-services of the total number of approved e-services (455) are integrated into the portal.
