As Ugandans throng Kololo ceremonial grounds for the Service Excellence Exhibition, an event government entities will use to increase publicity and awareness for the National Budget Month FY (Financial Year) 2019/20, National Identification Registration Authority (NIRA) has something special to offer.
The Authority has announced that during the event which will run from today, Wednesday, June 5 – Friday, June 7, they’ll be “registering children from 0 to 15yrs and issuing them with Birth Certificates on the same day.”
According to NIRA, if the child you’re taking for registration “is 9 months”, they’ll capture their biometrics and photos “so you may need to bring the child.”
For children above 5yrs and were registered in the 2017 learners project, you’ll only take “their enrolment documents or details.” And “for those below 9 months” NIRA only requires “their documents and not the child.”
According to the Authority, to get a Birth Certificate you need the following:
– A birth notification record from the place of birth (ie, hospital, division, district or sub-county).
– Copies of National IDs of both parents.
– A bank payment receipt of Shs5,000 for the certificate. (The money is paid at any URA revenue collection bank such as Bank of Africa, Diamond Trust Bank, Stanbic, Barclays, Orient, etc. [Remember, the fees are exclusive of bank charges].)

“Please note that when your children are registered there will be no other requirements when they turn 16yrs and ready to pick their cards,” NIRA tweeted Tuesday, adding: “Their data will simply be updated.”
