Icelanders are now able to access information about their passport, such as number, date of issue, date of expiration, name, and gender online at the government portal.
The new feature is intended to make it easier for individuals to access this information, such as for dependents or when booking a flight.
Icelandic travellers, however, are reminded that they will not able to use this page as identification, and that they will need to continue travelling with their passports.
Other new features to be introduced on island.is include the ability to apply and pay for passports in advance of their appointment at the magistrate’s office.
The feature has yet to be introduced to the island.is app, but there are plans for implementation of these new features on the app as well.
