What is the EU Disability Card?

The EU Disability Card has been taken into use in Finland in 2018. Persons with disabilities can use the card both in Finland and in other EU member states to easily prove their disability or need of assistance when, for example, travelling by public transport or participating in sports or culture events. The EU Disability Card is voluntary and cannot be used to obtain social benefits. A fee of 10 euros is charged when the card is issued.

This universal card will allow service providers to develop their services. Persons with disabilities can be taken into consideration better than before.

The EU Disability Card is similar in all the European countries in which it is taken into use. It contains a photo of the card holder, text in braille, and a hologram ID. On the back side, it is possible to include symbols and a QR code, in which users can store information about their need for help and support. Some of the persons entitled to use the card can have the symbol A (assistant) included on their card.
