The objects and reasons of this Bill are primarily to review a number of provisions within the Act in order to avoid discrimination against two categories of citizens: returning migrants whose use of the identity document as a travel document was being prohibited for the first six months of residence (whereas this did not apply in all other cases) and citizens who are not in a position to register their Act of Birth at the Public Registry (and consequently cannot apply for an Identity document because the identity document number was exclusively linked to the Public Registry Number). One additional amendment clarifies that the address to be recorded in the Identity document shall be located in the Maltese Islands.
