Singapore’s digital Singpass app is likely to become the more dominant ID used to register and vote in elections over the long-standing physical National Registration Identity Card, which was first issued in May 1966 to all Singaporeans aged 12 years old or above.
The Singpass app will be accepted at polling stations in the upcoming presidential elections, in a move towards a digitalised electoral system.
Voters can still opt to use their physical ID card when casting their vote on 13 September, 2023, however the government is encouraging adoption of the digital identity Singpass app which has greater capabilities to store data securely relating to 4.5 million voters.
Since 2021, the digital identity card has also been approved as a fundamental element to authorising services such as accessing public healthcare data, facilitating transactions and opening bank accounts.
While the Monetary Authority of Singapore has insisted on the use of the Singpass app for all transaction requests and ID proofing purposes, the physical national ID card remains in use as a token of citizenship for many and vital for applications for permanent residence status.
Physical and digital innovations at Identity Week Asia – the time to meet up with 3,000+ industry peers is fast approaching!
Today is the National Day of Singapore too! We’re celebrating by highlighting the innovative identity leaders from this small but mighty country.

The consensus on Singapore’s “little red book” ranking the world’s most powerful passport has solidified Identity Week Asia, due to take place in Singapore, as the perfect event to meet and discuss physical documents, as well as digital identity solutions.
Singapore beat Japan in the world rankings, the Henley Passport Index showed, across the APAC region and beyond for design, security features and usability which equally contributes to a useful passport. Japan was knocked off the top ranking held for 5 consecutive years after the latest study. Singapore’s passport boosts international travel to 192 countries, meeting the demand for travel while ensuring a continuous focus on the document’s security elements.
Singapore’s ambition to build the best passport ever enables travel to 193 out of 227 countries without visa entry.
The IATA, or International Air Transport Authority, inputted data to reassess the leaderboard of 227 countries delivering a well-rounded passport. 199 passports are typically considered in the Henley Passport Index consensus.
IATA’s Louise Cole who is head of Customer Experience will be joining the “Frictionless Travel” panel discussion at Identity Week America 2023 on 3-4 October.
Among the top passports determined in the Index, Germany, Italy, Spain, Austria and Finland also performed highly.
By comparison, America’s position slipped in the global passport rankings which could be due to the U.S. not having many state-issued ID documents.
Stage set for Identity Week Asia in Singapore
The passport is not the only indicator of Singapore’s economy and foothold in international travel. GovTech Singapore, a statutory board of the Government of Singapore, has signed plenty of MUA partnerships to bolster digitalisation and digital government.
A host of high-profile speakers are already spread across the whole agenda at Identity Week Asia to contribute to full discussions between the industry’s biggest players.
Identity Week Asia will provide a central meeting point in Asia for anyone involved in authenticating human identity, whether via a secure credential, biometric, or digital identity solutions. Be in the eye-line of potential investors and partners.
In 2023, 8th generation biometric technologies have achieved a high overall level of performance and trust, in line with robust standards.
Since NIST’s 2016 evaluation it is widely accepted that ‘inherent’ biases have been eliminated. Performance testing and reporting continues to be critical for continuing a trajectory of development and innovation against the ISO 19715 and ISO 30107 standards.
Here, Chris explains the different types of mobile phone, operational, scenario and PAD testing.

This interview is from 2022 with Linda Van Horn, President at iShare Medical who shares how digital identity is leveraged in healthcare to verify transactions of medical records between the patient and the medical profession.
Sonicbee, in collaboration with Identity Week, released The 2023 Survey Report: The State of the EU Digital Identity Wallet (aka eIDAS2.0). Turned into an interactive seminar at Identity Week Europe in June, the findings gauged the broad industry’s attitudes towards the introduction of a European-wide digital identity and data sharing solution, its advances and improvements still to be defined in the eIDAS 2.0 legal framework.
The availability of this survey is very timely with each member state currently establishing how to create their own interoperable national digital wallet and integrate personal identifying data from public notaries by the 2024 delivery data. Benefits to users of a unified approach supported by the eIDAS Regulation is linked in the report to an unlimited number of use cases and growing adoption of the wallet.
The report also addresses the EU’s ambitious timeline for realisation of the EU DI Wallet and the potential barriers to inclusion and proportionate uptake as countries invest in the architecture.
The expert survey was conducted by Jacoba Sieders and Henk Marsman of SonicBee in collaboration with the Identity Week Team in May and June 2023, leading up to Identity Week Europe 2023 conference held in Amsterdam on June 13th and 14th, 2023.
Selected experts from the conference panels were invited to respond. Preliminary results were discussed at the conference on June 14th, and reflections from that discussion are included in this report.
