The Thai National ID Card (Thai: บัตรประจำตัวประชาชน; rtgsbat pracham tua pracha chon) is an official identity document, issued only to Thai Nationals. The purpose of the card is to prove and identify the holder's identity, for receiving government services and other entitlements. It is also used for verifying identity of holder while transacting private businesses such as applying for a job or opening a bank account.[1] The Thai National ID Card is a smart card which contains the fingerprints of the holder. Those resident in Thailand with native Thai nationality will be issued an ID card at the age of 15 by their head of district department [2]
