The government mObywatel application allows you to keep most of your documents in one place, i.e. ID card, driving license, registration card, student ID card, etc. And although today we can handle many things with the application, e.g. at the post office (at least theoretically), soon virtual documents will have identical legal force as traditional ones.
Andruszkiewicz announces a revolution. The mObywatel application is like an ID card
Secretary of State in the Chancellery of the Prime Minister, Adam Andruszkiewicz, that work on the relevant act is ongoing and is currently at the stage of the Standing Committee of the Council of Ministers. Still in the second quarter, the draft should already be in the parliament. The politician hopes that the law will not arouse any emotions, will be passed quickly and will enter into force in the middle of the year.
If this actually happens, already during the holidays, when going to any corner of the country, we will not have to take our wallet with us. Andruszkiewicz emphasizes that the government’s goal is for the virtual version of the ID card to be able to settle any matter in any office or bank. Currently, proof in mObywatel is accepted primarily by points that have an agreement with the Chancellery of the Prime Minister – e.g. PKP and the Polish Post.
The introduction of the relevant act will force all public and private entities that until now require a traditional document to accept the application. The only exception will be crossing the border. In this case, you will still need a plastic ID card or passport.
