NIRA sets deadline for ID registration at sub-county level
National Identification Registration Authority (NIRA) has said the national ID registration exercise that is currently being conducted at sub-county level will run for only three months.
The exercise began on Feb. 11, meaning it will end on May 11.
For first-time ID applicants, the process is free while replacing a national ID and error rectification costs Shs50,000 each.

According to NIRA, after this 3-month program ends, anything to do with IDs will be now under authorities at district headquarters, divisions in Kampala or the Authority’s head office.
Remember, a national ID is now a very important document since you need it to apply for an ePassport.
However, you can also apply for a temporary identification document to process an electronic passport if you have no ID.
The exercise at the currently conducted at Subcounty or Ward level is a 3 months project intended to bring closer our registration services to the people. The same services continue to be offered at all our country wide district offices and Kampala divisions https://t.co/UGWh6TOHaB
