Smartcard Events

At the moment we are organising a schedule of future events.  Once this is completed we will publish it here.

Please note you can only book an event if you have sent us a completed application form and photo and have received a confirmation email.

If you are based in Edinburgh and would like to have your Smartcard issued, we hold drop-in sessions twice monthly at our offices in Morrison Street.  Dates currently in the calendar are:

Tuesday 7th February between 3pm and 5pm
Thursday 23rd February between 9.30 and 11am
Tuesday 7th March between 3pm and 5pm
Thursday 23rd March between 9.30 and 11am

Thursday 27th April between 9.30 and 11am
Tuesday 9th May between 3pm and 5pm
Thursday 25th May between 9.30 and 11am

If you plan to attend one of these sessions, please let us know which one so that we can have your Smartcard ready for issuing.

Required documents and information for events

In order to receive your Smartcard, you’ll need to provide the following in person at the registration event:

•    Proof of identity documents (see Guidance)
•    A six character PIN code and an eight character PUK code (both can be numeric or alphabetic).  These are codes created by you - you’ll need to keep a record of them so we suggest making them memorable.  If you lose your PUK code, you will need to repeat the Smartcard registration process in person to receive a new Smartcard.
•    Details of a business email address unique to you (i.e. not one shared with someone else).
•  At the registration event, you will also need to sign the Smartcard user contract
