This study examines the factors that affect the adoption of Location Based Identification LBI in the developing countries and more specific in Kurdistan Regional of Iraq (KRI). LBI has different names in different countries such as postcode in the United Kingdom and zip code in the United States. As a base model, the Technology Acceptance Model (TAM) and the Decomposed Theory of Planned Behaviour (DTPB) have been used to model the adoption factors of LBI in KRI. The latent variables used in this study are government support (GS), self-efficacy (SE), perceived usefulness (PU), perceived ease of use (PEU), compatibility (COM), Family and friends (FF), attitude (A), subjective norm (SN), perceived behaviour control (PBC) and behaviour intention (BI). A survey was conducted involving a total of 250 respondents. By using these models, the adoption of LBI system by the citizen of KRI has been proven. The results encourage the Kurdistan Regional Government decision makers to develop strategies that will lead to the adoption of LBI system in the region.
