The Ministry of Justice starts issuing one-month, non-electronic IDs

The Georgian Justice Ministry has allowed for the issuance of one-month, non-electronic ID cards for religious people, following a decision of the Constitutional Court which accepted the lawsuit protesting the current rule of issuing identification documents in Georgia.

The court, which accepted a lawsuit of two citizens against the rule of issuing ID cards and passports, ruled that before the final verdict is delivered, people will be able to receive both electronic and non-electronic IDs.

The Justice Ministry has stated that people who are without ID cards and refuse to apply for the document because of religious motives, will be able to receive non-electronic ID cards which will be valid for one month’s time, though he term might be prolonged before the court delivers the final verdict.
