  • The card's chip will have a higher capacity and non-touch data reading features.

  •  New information includes professional data, issuing authority and population group.
  • Enhanced protection of non-visible data: Data can now be read through the E-link system with the ICA.
  • A high-quality card with a longer service life: The card is made using polycarbonate, increasing its service life to over 10 years.
