行政院去年拍板換發數位身分識別證(New eID),預計最快 2020 年 10 月上路,國發會主委陳美伶3月18日表示,未來數位身分識別證只會顯示姓名、身分證字號和相片,配偶等資訊會隱藏,也不會出現國旗。

The Cabinet announced last year a new design of the electronic identification card (eID) to be released in October 2020. According to Chen Mei-lin (陳美伶), minister of the National Development Council (NDC), the new design will only display the card holder’s name, ID, and photo while information regarding his or her spouse and the national flag won’t be printed.

對此,內政部長徐國勇則表示,目前仍在研議中,還沒有完全確定,會再徵詢大家意見。

In response to media inquiries, Minister of Interior Hsu Kuo-yung (徐國勇), said that the decision is still under consideration and further consultations will be made to reflect public opinion.

綜合媒體報導,陳美伶於18日赴立法院備詢,面對立委徐永明質詢時表示,數位身分識別證目前內政部還在規畫。

According to several media reports, Chen said that the planning of the new eID is still underway by the Ministry of the Interior in response to legislator Xu Yong-ming’s (徐永明) questions on March 18.

至於「性別」是否隱藏,陳美伶表示目前仍在討論階段,而跨性別者,未來除了現行代表男性的「1」和女性的「2」之外,預計將「7」留給跨性別者使用,而「8、9」則使用在外國人居住證。

As for whether information about the cardholder’s gender will be concealed, Chen said it’s still being assessed. Media reported that number “1” could be used for male, “2” for female” and “7” for transgender people while numbers “8” and “9” will be for holders of an Alien Resident Certificate.

對於新版身分證可能不會出現國旗一事引發外界議論,內政部長徐國勇表示,兩蔣時代曾經有幾版的身分證也沒有國旗。

Hsu also responded to critics of concealing the national flag of the Republic of China, stressing that several ID versions under the presidencies of Chiang Kai-shek and Chiang Ching-kuo didn’t display the national flag either.

不過目前一切都在研議中,距離身分證換發還有一段時間,會再徵詢大家意見。。

“Everything is still under discussion. There is enough time before the renewal and we will seek opinions from the public,” said Hsu.
