Little by little, the digital citizenship card is gaining ground in the country, largely due to the procedures that this document can perform, including the performance of financial and commercial transactions and state procedures, such as voting.
And although many people find it easier to carry a digital ID, with it they cannot do some of the things that a physical ID can do.
Specifically, there are three processes that cannot be performed with this ID format. Meet them here:
1. Travel outside the Andean community: with this document, Colombians can travel freely to eight countries (Argentina, Bolivia, Brazil, Chile, Ecuador and Peru); However, it does not allow travel to territories outside this zone, especially those that require a physical passport.
2. Request credits: not all banking entities limit the use of the digital card as proof of identity to carry out this type of banking transactions, because there they request this physical document for the issuance of income support or risk center reports.
3. Notary procedures: usually, notaries ask the citizen to have their physical ID or an authenticated copy of it at hand in the case of bringing a deed, marriage and divorce process.Remember that, although more and more people are activating their digital ID, it is not necessary to have one.
