Temporary IDs available at city airports

CHINESE airline passengers who forget their ID cards can obtain temporary identification certificates before catching their flights as part of a national policy being introduced to Shanghai, police said yesterday.

It's among 14 services the security department has marked for improvement, including verification of the names of newborns.

The police said they hope the services will bring them closer to the citizens and meet their demands.

The temporary ID certificate is on the top of the list for improvement.

Police based at airports will draw up the certificates after verifying the passengers' identification on the police population registry.

The practice has been in effect already for trains, which has been important since railway operators started requiring passengers to show their tickets along with their ID cards when they were about to take the trains.

The police based at city's two international airports said the loss of ID cards is common.

They cannot, however, provide ID services for foreign passengers who lose their passports, police said.
