    View Comment
    1. There is no address correction, for as long as the national ID is Uganda, you shouldn’t worry about that. People registered from work place, residential places and etc. There is no cause for change. Now what if you as well change to another location, you will change again? You can change other info but not address! Otherwise for the burnt or damaged etc, use the replacement option.

  16. Hello NIRA
    I registered and pick my national id but I didn’t detect some mistakes on immediately.
    The following day when I came to rise a concern that my names were mispeled I was told to wait since I signed for it its only NIRA that can sort such kind of situation
    What do I do then?

    Example : my name is :Gidion Thembo
    Instead spelled as: Gideon thebo
    Kindly direct me where I can get help

    Gideon.

    1. Gidion, you should consider filling the details correction form, fill it in, pay the required fees, attach supporting documents eg a court affidavit and submit to NIRA kololo for change of your information.

  29. Lost and Found NIRA Uganda national identity cards adverts board. Mr. Adams, we really appreciate your efforts to help us in recovering our lost Uganda national ID’s and NIN Numbers.

    Please can you help us start something like lost and found national id adverts board so we can simply post our lost nira uganda identity card details, and too check for others who lost them.

    This can help in relieving us the headaches of police and etc. Think about this mr adams, you can even charge everyone who posts a lost id in his name and charge those who come to collect the lost ids.

    1. Thank you so much David Roundtree for the comment. I really appreciate the fact that you are one person who can recognize that indeed, what we do helps many out there. About the Lost and Found NIRA Uganda national identity cards adverts board, this is something we are still thinking of considering the various legal requirements to run it. Remember, not all people have their lost, others are simply stolen and etc where by advertising them might mean that one posting is the thief, and which isn’t the case at most. We will update you immediately we are on board. Thanks.

  30. 1. Where are the Kampala division offices for NIRA located?
    2. There are many lost national identity cards at various police stations(the few i have checked for my lost id) around Kampala,iam suggesting that a mechanism to recover such lost documents back to their owners should be thought about,as the card may be found on a far away police station than the suspected one. This may be faster instead of the whole hectic exercise of replacement both in terms of time and moneywise. Thnx

    View Comment
    1. Thanks Carol for the comment. What would you suggest as being the solution or mechanism for recovering national ID’s? Should they be advertised in the news, radio or TV? But still, not everyone buys them? How about the police taking them to NIRA head office since all replacements are processed from that side? Don’t you think at least that would save? Anyways, that was my personal view. Please share yours @Carol

      View Comment
      1. Thank you for the response. Well your view would work but look more at less expensive ways of advertising them. I would think police officers before writing those “to whom it may concern letters” can first inquire among the other police stations with the details of the lost id.
        Secondly, about your view, all lost ids being submitted to NIRA head office(though i agree it can work for the ones around kampala) may be hectic and costly again for someone in a remote village upcountry to access the head office. May be what would work for them is the different police stations, even community police compiling a list of all lost ids and copies be given to LC1s(following the details of where the card was issued from) who are directly in contact with these people so that they inform them where exactly to locate their ids. Thank you.

        1. Carol, I dont think that your suggestion can ever work. If NIRA was a private institution, may be it would but being a government ran, Oh think about how information flows. Sure, I really wonder how long it can take for a police post deep in masaka there to file to Central for example. Even if that system was in place, I think it wont work out why? If a Fortportal resident lost his ID in Kampala or even in Gulu, how would it reach Fortportal? Besides, how will one know that the ID he or she lost was sent back?

          Personally, I would think that setting up something like an Online portal where every lost ID with its details would be posted, and a location to pick it up added, that would save since at least a bigger percentage would be able to use that portal. May be something else, but not the one you suggested above.

      1. NIRA head office is within Kampala. At KCCA central division, you are likely to get the Registration and Pickup of issued national ID’s but not submitting replacement application I guess. Try KCCA central division offices just after Post Bank Nakivubo. Hope this answers your question Carol.

Simply visit the URA web portal and generate a payment registration number and proceed to the bank and pay. Read how to generate Payment PRN here. All you need to do is to select NIRA from the drop down list, and a bank of your choice.

Taking that aside, you can only get to know your NIN by visiting the NIRA offices. And please note that, its not all about UCC disconnecting your lines but rather, you need to have that national id as a good citizen/. So process the replacement when its not too late.

    1. You had not made a photocopy out of your Uganda national ID before you lost it? If you had, simply use that on the copy but if you had not, then you should contact NIRA directly and see if you can get your NIN. If you have the Voters slip, check on it, chances are that your NIN is there.

  48. Good evening NIRA UGANDA.
    Am here by submitting in a problem for my Lost National Identity Card. I lost my National Identity Card since 27th December 2015 whereby it was stolen with my Bag containing other items, it happened when i was travelling by a Bus from KARUMA to GULU where i stay.
    I reported to the Police the following day after the incident, I checked all the Radio Stations in Gulu but i never find my ID Card.

    Just recently i went to The NIRA OFFICE in GULU on the 27th January 2017 for the process of replacing that lost National ID. They sent me to the ORIENT BANK to pay for the Charges for Replacement.
    Then i went and acquired the Letter from the Gulu Police Post again. I attached it plus Bank Payment Sheet and the form i used for registering of the National ID Card.
    Just this month of March i went to the NIRA GULU OFFICE to check if there was any progress made upon the Replacement of my National ID CARD but they told that, they are calling people on Phones to go and take their photos from KAMPALA .
    Now am confused on what to do because i have not yet received any Phone Call concerning that issue!
    Please help me if possible, am ready to come where you will direct me to.
    My Phone Number is (0789163143).

    I would be very glad i my problems are put under your consideration.

    Yours Sincerely.

    Odoch Emmy.

    1. I would advise you to inquire directly from NIRA Gulu and if told to go to Kampala head office, then that will be the choice.

      1. I am sure you were given a Tracking number for your application. Why not go to Kololo or where you applied for the Replacement Uganda national ID and find out. That will help you for real. Thank you for commenting Chebet ali.

    2. Thanks for the comment Chebet ali. First, were you given a tracking or reference number? And where were you told to collect the national ID from? If it is NIRA head office in Kololo, I would advise you to go there. And if you were told any other office, then of course you should at that. Hope this helps.

  50. Hello how long does it take to get a replacement for a lost id

    View Comment
    1. Thanks Nicholas kintu for the comment and question. To be honest, the time it takes varies depending on certain factors which may include but not limited to where you submitted your Replacement national ID from eg Kololo or other offices, and how long you were told to officially wait. That information is available the moment you hand in your application.

    1. While your comment isn’t detailed, one thing I can assure you is that you can get a national ID if it is what you are looking for. Try and go search from your registration place, and or go to NIRA offices in Kololo and make a formal inquiry.

    1. First time national ID registration is free of charge. Go to where they are registering eg at the KCCA division and register. You will be told when to get your ID. But if you had it before and say lost it, then you are subject to paying…

    1. Go to the subcounty offices where you fall. They will tell you where to pick your ID but most likely, it will be there. Your village where you registered from falls under a parish, that parish too falls under a subcounty. Go there and seek help on where your Uganda national ID is.

  55. hi
    i left my national ID in another country,Kenya to be precise,in a hotel room as i was rushing to come to Uganda.I was mainly in a rush of applying for a job which has a deadline this Sunday.Unfortunately at the job offices i was requested to provide my National Identification Number (NIN) yet im sure my card is in Kenya,Turkana State.
    So im inquiring is there a way i can obtain my NIN from Uganda because i want to beat the deadline? If so, what is the procedure of obtaining the NIN?
    In addition I have the document i used when i was applying for the Nationl ID.
    Ivan

    1. The better way is to call the hotel where your left your ID and see if they have it. Or, simply go to NIRA offices in Kololo and see if you can get the ID.

  56. My mums year of birth is not correct.they wrote another year for her.what can we do.she was complaining

    View Comment
    1. Instead of she complaining, and which wont help in anyway, your mother should apply for national ID details / info correction. She should download the form from the NIRA portal, fill it in, generate a payment registration number, make payment to the bank and submit details to NIRA head office with supporting documents confirming that what they filled in was an error. Hope this helps you Akullo Robinah

      View Comment
  71. For how long because a little longer is never specific

    View Comment
    1. Now that is the kind of information you should obtain from the location where you applied from. It is hard for me to know when your info was put in the database, whether it was verified or not and whether you paid or not. Please keep hold, am sure the officers responsible for your ID will issue it very soon…
