E-citizen, Official e-mail
What is an official e-mail?
An official e-mail is an official means of communication which is granted and used for incoming messages free of charge. According to the legislation of the Republic of Armenia, a person is also considered properly notified if the notification has been sent to their official e-mail address, and a read-receipt has been received.
All natural persons are granted an official e-mail address when their Armenian ID card is issued. State and local self-government bodies and legal entities registered in the RA also have official e-mail addresses.
A natural person’s official e-mail address consists of their social services number or - if they do not have one - the number of the certificate certifying that they have not received a social services number, and the words “@e-citizen.am”. The official e-mail is considered activated upon provision of the ID card.
The official e-mail address of state and local self-government bodies and legal entities consists of the code of the legal entity or that of the staff of the state or local self-government body and the words “@e-citizen.am”.
EKENG has been appointed as the administrator of the official e-mail system in Armenia by decision № 1385-N of the RA Government, dated 12.11.2015.
