PUTRAJAYA: The enhanced MyKad is so popular that it takes up to three months to get your hands on it.
Previously, an applicant only needed to wait a day to get the new MyKad.
The National Registration Department (NRD) is receiving an average of 21,000 applications daily since the introduction of the enhanced MyKad in January.
Home Ministry secretary-general Tan Sri Mahmood Adam said as of March 31, the department had received 1,516,126 applications for the new card.
He said the NRD had the capacity to issue about 8,000 cards a day.
