The Department of Home Affairs advises that it did not issue the statement that said the lifespan of green barcoded ID books would end on March 31, 2018. 

Green barcoded ID books remain a legal form of identification and will continue to be one until the Department has rolled out its Live Capture System at all Home Affairs offices. The new system will enable South Africans to apply for Smart ID cards. 

The Department says it has developed a plan to systematically phase out the green barcoded ID books and all South Africans can apply for Smart ID cards at any of the 180 offices that are already equipped with the Live Capture System. A partnership between the Department and FNB, Standard Bank, Nedbank and ABSA has also been put in place to create on online portal where clients can lodge an application without visiting a Home Affairs office.
