New credit-card sized passport will allow travel within EU
Presumably this is for EU citizens.
Yes indeed. That's why it's posted in the Europe thread. It's actually a good idea to introduce such an ID Card because not everyone who lives within the EU wants to travel outside the EU / EEA. It's also cheaper to obtain than a passport, seeing it this way, it's a good idea. Depends on the travel patterns of the individual of course. Cheers.
Sounds sorta like the USA passport card for North America. Good idea I guess.
It's a minipassport for travel to places where the passport doesn't need to be stamped.
However, I've seen EU citizens travel internationally within the EU with just their national identity cards. I wonder if this new thing will bring about the end to that practice.
Or more precisely, for Irish citizens. At least my read of the story is that it isn't in all countries of the EU.
Then it's hardly such a big deal and the information that this is for citizens of Ireland should have been in the thread title or at least the OP.
Right, I think it's basically Ireland catching up with other European countries who have had national ID cards for many years. Certainly convenient but unless I am missing something, not earth shattering news for the rest of the world
