They are supposed to be used only to confirm the identity Polish citizens. So, the new ID cards do not contain the information about the address check, eye color or height. Also disappear a scanned signature of the holder of the document. Size and dimensions of the identity card will not change, but the photograph in the force will be the same as that which appears in the passport. More importantly ID cards are to be distinguished by a wide range of security, among others: double reproduced photograph of the holder of the document, pressing, microprints or special paint.
