Digital COVID-19 Status

Louisiana is the first state in the country to provide residents with digital access to their vaccination records in accordance with the SMART Health Cards Framework, a standard that enables the digital sharing and verification of personal health information using open, interoperable, and verifiable standards. This allows Louisianians to demonstrate their health status anywhere the SMART Health Card is accepted around the world.

In-App Duplicate Ordering

LA Wallet now allows you to skip the DMV by renewing your license or ID in the LA Wallet App. In the "Account" section, choose "Duplicate Credential Purchase".

Businesses must accept LA Wallet

As of December 22, 2020, businesses in Louisiana may not refuse to accept LA Wallet for age-restricted purchases or identification purposes. While LA Wallet has always offered Louisiana residents a legal, digital identification credential, HB54 makes LA Wallet an equivalent credential to a physical license or ID.

Louisiana Representative Ted James of Baton Rouge authored HB54 and presented the new law in October 2020. Representative James is also responsible for the law that made a digital credential available to Louisiana residents, making it the first of its kind in the United States.

The newest accomplishment for Louisiana provides LA Wallet users with more chances to utilize their digital credentials than ever before. Before HB54, businesses in Louisiana were given the option to accept LA Wallet as a legal form of identification. Now, LA Wallet digital credentials are equivalent to a physical license or ID.
