For replacement of a national ID, you’ll be charged Shs50,000. (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].)
The form you’ll fill to replace your ID can be downloaded from the NIRA website or picked from either of the aforementioned offices.
You’ll also need a report from the police indicating that you lost your national ID.
Remember, you need a national ID to apply for an ePassport, acquire a sim card among other important documents in Uganda.
