This is where you can get your Smart ID right now

It is possible for all South Africans to now apply for their Smart IDs.

Officially, Smart ID applications are only open to youth and senior citizens, provided they go to one of Home Affairs’ Smart ID-ready offices.

Standard Bank and FNB have rolled out a Smart ID pilot project with the department, but only bank employees can apply at participating branches.

However, reports have emerged that people who visit certain Home Affairs offices can renew their identity documents and receive a Smart ID.

The department confirmed that offices equipped with its new Live Capture system may allow any citizen to apply for a Smart ID.

“Office managers have the prerogative to allow clients to apply for Smart ID cards on the basis of the volumes of 16-year-old and pensioner clients on the day,” said the department.

The department said the green ID book is still valid until such time as it announces otherwise.

The following Home Affairs offices are equipped with the Live Capture system, and may take your Smart ID application. 178 offices will be equipped with the system by the end of March 2016.
