All Government agencies will accept, from 1 November 2021, the Digital Identity Card (IC) on the Singpass app as an alternative means to prove an individual’s identity for in-person agency services.
What is Digital IC
The Digital IC is a feature in your Singpass app that displays your name, NRIC number/FIN, photograph, date of birth, sex, nationality, date of issue, registered address, pass type and status, pass issue and expiry date, and other additional fields for work passes such as the employer and sector.
You can tap on the Digital IC card and verify your identity to display more personal details, such as your date of birth, registered address, etc.
You can also tap on “Show barcode” to scan your NRIC/FIN barcode at kiosks, such as those at libraries and SingHealth polyclinics.
