Bahrain’s Information & e-Government Authority (iGA) and the Saudi Data and Artificial Intelligence Authority (SDAIA) along with the Secretariat General of the GCC discussed the creation of the GCC Smart Card Technical Team.

The step came amid intensifying discussions among the GCC nations aimed at promoting technical integration.

Conversations included the acceleration of integration of Bahrain’s and Saudi Arabia’s ID verification systems, a project that would be the first phase of a larger Secretariat General plan to connect the systems of all GCC countries. The benefits of an integrated system include allowing Bahraini and KSA citizens to access each other's national platforms when visiting their respective countries.

In this way, Bahrain citizens would be able to use Saudi Arabia’s Unified National Platform my.gov.sa using the same eKey usernames and passwords they use in Bahrain without the need to create new accounts when visiting Saudi Arabia. The same would apply to Saudi citizens in Bahrain. Saudi citizens would be able to use their Identity Authentication system to access bahrain.bh.
