New identity card: the name of certain municipalities may block your renewal request

the essential
Since the beginning of August, the new identity card in “bank card” format has been rolling out. Problem, some names of municipalities are too long and do not fit in the new format.

Saint-Quentin-la-Motte-Croix-au-Bailly, this commune name in the Somme department is too long for the new format of the identity card. Several inhabitants of the village have not been able to redo their identity papers and therefore find themselves stranded …

Only 29 characters seem to fit on the back of the identity card, just after the postal code. Problem, at least 78 municipalities in France have names of 30 characters or more. This represents 67,400 French people. So many people who will find it difficult to renew their card. In the Occitanie region, 17 municipalities could be concerned.
