The applicant has to collect an issued identity card within 90 days from the expiry of the deadline for its issuance (120 days in a regular procedure, 100 days in an accelerated procedure and 93 days in an urgent procedure). If he fails to do so, the identity card will be annulled.
Identity cards and the certificates they contain are valid for five years. Exceptionally, identity cards issued to applicants who are 70 or older are valid for 40 years.
Applicants who are 70 or older and who obtain an identity card with certificates can continue using their identity card even after their certificates expire (after five years), but they will not be able to electronically authenticate their identity nor will they be able to use it to create a qualified electronic signature. If a person who is 70 or older still wishes to use his identity card for electronic identity authentication and creation of electronic signature after the certificates expire (as an e-document), he will have to apply for a new identity card.
