    Do Muslim women who wear the full veil show their face on their passpsort or driving licence or any other form of identity.

    Logically I would say they must, but who knows at the moment. Maybe its their human right or religious honour to be able keep themselves covered. Which would be stupid.

    They have to show their full face, it's the law. If the face is covered the application gets sent back.

    No, they make a special exception because they're muslim.

    Of course they have to show their faces.

    I think the standard procedure is not allowing a full veil (though headscarves are allowed as long as the face is visible), and when veiled women get their passport checked they must reveal themselves, but it's fully within their rights to ask for it to be done in a private place with a fellow woman (and quite rightly so).

    I would not be surprised at all if they did give them special consideration, with all the appeasement going on these days.
