The national Identity Card (IC) registration system is undergoing an upgrade, the Immigration and National Registration Department (INRD) announced yesterday.

Applications for the replacement of yellow and purple ICs have been suspended, and the resumption of services will be announced at a later date.

The authorities assured that ICs that have expired can continue to be used for relevant matters.
