    DOCUMENTO NACIONAL DE IDENTIDAD
    It is mandatory in many Spanish-speaking countries to carry a national identity card, or Documento Nacional de Identidad (DNI), showing the bearer's personal details and a photo. In Spain it is also called a carné, and all Spanish citizens have to carry one from the age of fourteen. The card is renewed every five or ten years at police stations, and must be shown to police upon demand. A similar document, the “Cédula (Nacional) de Identidad” is carried in Colombia, Paraguay, Uruguay, Venezuela, Argentina and Chile. In 2006 Spain began introducing an electronic identity card, which has a microchip containing the holder's personal details in digitized form.
