At the OECS level there is talk about the introduction of an OECS white card. We believe that you can use the national ID card for travelling purposes once it has the required information to determine who you are and where you come from. It can be used for free medical care for those above 60…” he said.Dominica Vibes News Share Tweetlast_img
