Tunisia's first MobileID launched

August 4, 2022

(TAP)- Minister of Communication Technologies Nizar Néji announced the launch of Tunisia's first MobileID, the national digital identity. This will ensure a secure and rapid access to administrative services.

Mobile Identity will offer users secure access to government portals and electronic services without using a user name and a password, the minister said Wednesday at a press conference in El Kasbah to outline the project. The technology will provide protection against hacking.

It will also make it possible for users 'to conduct all administrative proceedings in an easy and simple way without being compelled to travel.' Citizens will be able to retrieve online administrative documents at any time without going to administrative offices.

The ultimate goal is to do away with such procedures as certified signature by using the electronic signature, the minister said.

He added that the MobileID will serve as the identity that will allow access to, the citizen portal for online services, to get a copy of the birth certificate as the first official administrative document.

Néji also said the service was put in place in partnership with the National Agency of Electronic Certification (Tuntrust)- as an internationally recognised government certification authority- the National Computing Centre (French: CNI) in charge of developing and hosting government and national systems as well as the 3 mobile phone operators (Tunisie Telecom, Ooreedoo and Orange).
