The first pilot phase of the Portuguese ID Card also known as Cartão de Cidadão started February 14, 2007, in the Azores region. The full roll-out started in 2008.
In 2014, all Portuguese citizens have their new national identity card in hand replacing the old paper-based document.

​The goal of issuing a Portuguese ID Card was to revolutionize the way in which Portuguese citizens interact with the government.
