[PRESS RELEASE] Ethiopia launches inclusive ID system for refugees, boosts access to national services

Document Type: Press Releases
Document Language: English
Program (NIDP) and the UN Refugee Agency launched an initiative to include refugees and asylum seekers into the Ethiopian Digital ID system. This new refugee ID (with Fayda number) will allow refugees to access key services like obtaining a SIM card, healthcare or school enrolment and will also help them improve their access to financial services, providing refugees with the opportunity to open bank accounts and engage in financial transactions. Refugee entrepreneurs can also formally register their businesses, contributing to the local economy.
