General Secretariat adopted the unified identity card reader’s programme established by the Kingdom of Bahrain, represented by Central Information and Communication Organization.The adoption of the programme is based on the edict issued by the GCC Supreme Committee to consider the identity card as personal identity evidence on the go and travel between the GCC Countries.
The director of information systems development ‘s Directorate at the Central Information and Communication Organization, Nazeeh Al Jooder said that the development process of the unified identity card reader programme for the GCC Identity Cards passed through several steps. He also said that based on the results of the study, and due to the young Bahraini Cadres, who were highly qualified and efficient, they could successfully accomplish the programme.
Al Jooder highlighted that some technical teams of the identity cards from the GCC States were invited to perform a test for the identity card reader programme for every state. Al Jooder valued the appreciation of the GCC General Secretariat for the effort done by the Kingdom of Bahrain to establish such programme. Al Jooder said that the new programme of the identity card reader can read the identity cards for every GCC state and ensure the validity of the card in terms of its expiration or loss directly from the state of origin. The programme can also detect any card counterfeit, in addition to using it at the electronic gates.
