Minister of Digitization Marek Zagórski:

Activation of the electronic layer is not mandatory. If we do not decide to do so upon receipt of the document, we can return to it at any time and in any office. However, many Poles, almost 40%, do it right away.

40% is not much, but it turns out that there are municipalities in Poland in which residents who produce proof activate the electronic layer in 100%, here they are:

  • Rejowiec Fabryczny (Chełm poviat, Lublin voivodeship),
  • Wyryki (Włodawa poviat, Lublin voivodeship),
  • Bełchatów (Bełchatów poviat, Łódź voivodeship),
  • Bystra – Sidzina (Sucha poviat, Lesser Poland voivodeship),
  • Ceranów (Sokołowski poviat, Lesser Poland voivodeship),
  • Opatowiec (Kazimierz poviat, Świętokrzyskie voivodeship),
  • Łączna (Skarżysko poviat, Świętokrzyskie voivodeship),
  • Milejewo (Elbląg County, Warmian-Masurian Voivodeship),
  • Obrzycko (Szamotuły County, Greater Poland Voivodeship),
  • Kaźmierz (Szamotuły County, Greater Poland Voivodeship),
  • Nowogródek Pomorski (Myślborski poviat, West Pomeranian voivodeship).

These are municipalities, and as if to extend the scope to the entire voivodship, the most activation of the electronic layer was in the Wielkopolskie Voivodship – 56%, followed by the Dolnośląskie Voivodship – 54.81%, Łódź – 52.49%, Świętokrzyskie – 51.84% and Mazowieckie – 50 02%.

  Poles are more eager to use digital products and services than other countries of the former communist bloc

In which regions do most e-IDs get the most citizens?

Minister Marek Zagórski:

By November 4, 207,950 residents of Mazovia received their e-IDs. Electronic evidence also has over 153,000 Silesians and over 120,000 residents of Lesser Poland. The next places in this category are the Wielkopolskie Voivodship, where almost 119,000 e-evidence was received, and the Dolnośląskie Voivodship with over 110,000.

To submit an application for a new e-ID, simply use the website –, and you can activate the electronic layer when you receive the document at the office. For this they will need to define two PIN codes consisting of 4 digits (needed to log into e-services) and the second of 6 (to sign letters).
