According to the provisions of Clause 12, Article 3 of Decree 59/2022/ND-CP, VNeID is:
“dinhdanhdientu.gov.vn”, “vneid.gov.vn” refers to an e-identification webpage created and developed by the Ministry of Public Security to enable access to e-identification and e-authentication services during the process of handling of administrative procedures, public administrative services and other transactions in cyberspace; help promote facilities and amenities necessary for agencies, entities and individuals.
Thus, VNeID electronic identification card is a mobile application developed by the National Population Data Center of the Ministry of Public Security of Vietnam.
VNeID was built with the purpose of replacing traditional documents. This application is built on a database of identification, population and electronic authentication, providing utilities for developing digital citizens, digital government, and digital society.
II. Are people forced to use VNeID electronic identification?
According to Decree 59/2022/ND-CP, currently, there are no regulations forcing people to register to use VNeID.
However, recently, the police nationwide are implementing a policy of calling and encouraging people to register electronic identification accounts on the VNeID application according to the Prime Minister’s policy in the Identity and Identification Development Project. Electronic reality serving national digital transformation.
III. Inadequacies in VNeID integration
Although the VNeID application has been integrated in many agencies, organizations, and businesses, people still need to bring traditional identification documents when making transactions. The reason is that there are still some inadequacies as follows:
– The rate of people using VNeID is still low: According to statistics from the Ministry of Public Security, as of October 2023, only about 60% of the Vietnamese population has registered to use the VNeID application. This makes integrating VNeID at agencies, organizations, and businesses difficult because many people still do not have the application or have not activated the application.
– The national population database has not been completed: The national population database is an important foundation for integrating VNeID. However, this database still has some shortcomings, such as some people’s information has not been fully and accurately updated and some people’s information being duplicated. This can lead to errors when authenticating information using VNeID.
– Agencies, organizations, and businesses are not ready for VNeID integration: Some agencies, organizations, and businesses do not have enough resources and human resources to deploy VNeID integration. In addition, some agencies, organizations and businesses do not have close coordination with each other in integrating VNeID.
