All citizens in this country need an official identification document to use it on multiple occasions and if requested. Technology is making these methods of personal identification improve by leaps and bounds, as is now the case with the DNIe 4.0.
Little by little, that paper document that has been with us for decades has been modernized in parallel with the technology that we can enjoy. Thus, for some time now we have the possibility of requesting the latest electronic DNI, also known as DNIe 4.0. For this we must meet a series of requirements to be able to request it and use it where requested.
Basically what we want to tell you is that we have the opportunity to renew our old National Identity Document with this most current one. In these same lines we are going to talk about how to get this new European electronic DNI, which will be very useful in many situations. Among the advantages that it offers us, we can highlight the new security measures that it incorporates by default, as well as the verification and biometric identification functions.
When can I request the new identity document?
All this will allow us to discard and discard our old ID and sign up for new technologies. Well, at this point we will say that it is not necessary for our old identity document to have expired to request the new one. Therefore, we can request the DNIe 4.0 at any time to benefit from its functions.
It can also be useful if we are going to change some information, such as the current address of the National Identity Document that we have at that time. This can be considered as an excellent case to request the most current one already with the modified data. Obviously, other cases in which it can be very useful for us to request this new electronic ID is if we have lost it or it has been stolen. It may also be the case that the old document is damaged or spoiled and we want to have the new one.
Of course, in case of theft or loss or any other reason why we cannot have access to our identity document, we should file a complaint that can be very useful to us later.
