Photographic identification document

Felix Lee made this Official Information request to Department of Internal Affairs

The request was successful.

From: Felix Lee

Dear Department of Internal Affairs,

I would like to follow up on the "Summary report: The impact of photographic identification requirements on people without common photographic documents" found here

It says by December 2019 "Internal Affairs will monitor whether the private sector provides a solution and the extent to which this addresses the problem. Internal Affairs will consider if further action is required to stimulate the market." also "Should the market still not provide a suitable photographic document, Internal Affairs could consider further actions, such as procuring the document and relooking at a government-issued document."

Can I please request any updated reports etc you have made on this topic?

Thank you

Yours faithfully,

Felix Lee
