Brazilian citizens can now install the new RG Digital on the cellphone. With the digital document, citizens can enjoy more convenience in their day-to-day life, as well as the security of not losing their RG and obtaining it anywhere.
The Federal Government recently released the update of the document with the aim of providing more security and practicality to Brazilians.
However, it is important to note that although the digital RG download has already been released, not all states in the country have already joined the modality. According to government information, states will have until May 2023 to adapt to the new format.
RG Digital can now be downloaded
The new RG can now be downloaded onto Brazilians’ cell phones. However, only the states of Alagoas, Federal District, Goiás, Pará, Paraíba, Rio de Janeiro and São Paulo are releasing the new version of the document. For those who do not reside in one of the mentioned states, it will be necessary to wait for the implementation.
It is important to point out that, despite being offered in several states of the country, not all still have the digital version of the document.
It turns out that current legislation determines that each state is responsible for issuing the RG. Thus, each state has its own definitions, as well as whether or not they can release the digital version of the document at this time.
Check the states that offer the RG and download it on your mobile:
After installing the RG, the citizen just has to click on the option to add the document. Once that’s done, point your cell phone’s camera at the QR Code that’s on your document and validate the digital version.
