You can now apply for your new SA ID card online at www.ehome.dha.gov.za
The site looks pretty good for a government website and seems to work well. The only problem is that when I tried to register I got this error message:
Please take note of the following:
We are unable to register you right now, please contact your nearest Home Affairs branch for assistance.
So I’m not sure if I’m not allowed to register or if it’s between a certain age group or what the problem is. I would really like to get one of these new ID cards because it’s such a hassle walking around with an old ID book and you never have it with you when you need it.
I also think they should have done this ages ago because now you can just keep it in your wallet and you will always have it with you. And you can wash it with your clothes unlike an ID book. Am I right?
Please comment below how you found the experience and any updates that you can supply me with and I will post it here. Maybe there’s something we don’t know.
