Greek Citizens Can Store National ID & Driver’s License On New Wallet App
Greek citizens can securely upload their national ID and driver’s license onto their smartphone via the newly launched Wallet app, which is part of Greece’s wider effort to transition into the digital era.

The app, a joint initiative of the digital governance, transport, and citizen’s protection ministries, was presented during a special event on Wednesday attended by Prime Minister Kyriakos Mitsotakis and government officials.

Documents downloaded onto the Wallet app can be used in all transactions where physical documents were used with the ultimate goal to facilitate e-business and e-government services.
