NIRA Birth Certificate Registration Form 3 [Download Preview]

NIRA Form 3 Download Preview NIRA is the government body which takes on the Birth Certificate issuing and registration in Uganda. Known as the Uganda National Identification Registration Authority, it is the same body which is responsible for the National ID registration and issuance to qualifying citizens of Uganda, and which means that in order to get either a death or birth certificate or a national ID, you should provide them with all the required details.

Before, this was the work of the Uganda Registration Services Bureau (URSB) until when NIRA took over the above ever since the country introduced the National ID’s. If you are in need of a bithy certificate, it is mandatory that you obtain a short BC which you should present to NIRA offices together with the fully filled Form 3 you can obtain from their offices, and or download from online just like you can see the preview in this post.

This downloaded NIRA form 3 (regulation 8(1)) has many options to fill which include but not limited to the following below..

    How long doesn’t it take to get a birth certificate and also changing mistake made in my id

    • KWS Adams says:

      sennono stephern, the time it takes is determined by many factors including where you submit. One thing you should know is that upon submission, you are told when to pick your ready birth certificate. On the mistakes side, it all depends on the mistake made for example, you might be required to swear a court affidavit, advertise in the press and etc to correct name errors. Hope this helps.

    Lost a relative in 1994. He didn’t die in the hospital. Apparently the administrator general needs a death certificate. How do we go about this? Can we get a death certificate? What documents are needed?

    • KWS Adams says:

      You need to download and fill NIRA Form 12 for notification of death…. You should have a short death certificate and a medical report indicating the cause of death as well.

  6. justice says:

    hi, i missed the mass registration and now they have started it again but i dont know what requirements they need for registering.can u help. thnx

    • KWS Adams says:

      Thanks justice for the comment and inquiry. As per NIRA guidelines, Ugandan citizens should turn up for registration with any supporting documents. These may include Birth Certificate, Marriage Certificate, Academic certificates, Passport, LC letter etc. Birth certificates, Religious certificates, School leaving certificates, Child health card, Notification of birth, Letter of administrative officer, Parish/Sub county chief, Statutory Declarations, LC letter, Any other as the case maybe.

      You can go to your LC1 and get a letter. Have it stamped by the GISO and proceed to the Parish offices, Sub county office or KCCA division offices eg KCCA Rubaga, KCCA Makindye, KCCA Kawempe, KCCA Nakawa, etc according to where registration is taking place.
