The Maldives are known for their nice beaches and wonderful holiday resorts on many islands. Now the Maldives have also become a place of innovation. Maldives Immigration has just introduced a new, very innovative type of ID card: It can be used for payments, but also serves as a national ID card, as a driver´s license as well as a health card and insurance card. Last but not least it is also used like a passport for easy travelling. This is why the new card is called "Passport Card". The innovative card and system was developed by Maldives Immigration, together with DERMALOG from Germany as the technology provider.
Citizens of the Maldives do not need to carry many cards around anymore. The famous islands are becoming a country where one single card serves for everything which matters, starting from payment up do driving, health, insurance, travelling and many more different applications. The new card is a so called "multi-purpose-card" which is very special in many ways.
