The Ministry of Industry, Innovation, Science and Technology (MIST) and the Electoral Department (ED) have advised that the delivery of the new Trident ID cards will be delayed by one month, due to an unfortunate set of circumstances.

According to a Government official, the local vendor has experienced a delay in delivering a critical component for card issuance.

 The official continued: “We know that you are looking forward to getting your new card and regret the disappointment, but we are working with them to keep the delay as short as possible.

“The collection date printed on your certificate of registration will be deferred by one month.  For example, if your collection date was August 12, your new date will be September 12.  If that date falls on a Sunday, then it will be the next working day.”

The official added that MIST and the Electoral Department sincerely regret this unforeseen and unwelcome delay at this late stage. “However, we are ensuring your Trident card is your Trusted Identity and that it is capable of providing you true ease of doing business,” the spokesperson stated.
