      The City Council of Pattaya had encouraged applicants who were of Thai nationals to apply for a Smart Card I.D, if they had not already done so. Applicants wishing to apply for the card would be able to do so at the Banglamung Council Office, taking along their old identifications, or a paper typed I.D, a House Title Deed, or a passport. The office opening hours are from 0830-1630 on Mondays to Saturdays.

      The beauty of a new Smart Card ID meant that a Thai national would be able to access various government departments with ease should they see the need to contact them. The card would contain definite and specific details of a holder using various finger printing systems, hence making it virtually impossible to forge. Besides the card would be made of hard plastic it would therefore be more durable than the previous paper format hence reducing the cost of National‘s budget . Additionally, holders of the new Smart Card I.D would be able to access their personal data through the government on-line Database, as well as, using their new ID card as a substitute for their Driver’s License.

    Welcome to the 21st Century!
