Polish identity card
Every Polish citizen 18 years of age or older residing permanently in Poland must have an Identity Card issued by the local Office of Civic Affairs. Polish citizens living permanently abroad are entitled, but not required, to have one. Identity cards are valid for a period of 10 years. The front bears a photo of the owner, his/her given name, surname, date of birth, parents' names and gender. It also contains the coat of arms of the Republic of Poland and a security hologram. In the right down corner a special security element can be found - the photo of the person and the year of expiration, but only one of them can be shown, depending on the angle of looking. On the back can be found the owner's nationality, place of birth, date of issue, date of expiry, card number, issuing authority and personal number. Below the card number is the repeated owner's photo and the data in machine-readable form. The Polish identity card is a travel document inside the European Union and, additionally, non-EU-member countries within the Schengen area - Norway, Switzerland, Liechtenstein, Vatican City, San Marino and Monaco.
