HOW TO TRANSFER YOUR NATIONAL e-ID CARD TO A NEW LOCATION FOR COLLECTION

Applicants who enrolled for the National Identity Number (NIN) at one location, then moved to a new location and wish to collect their e-ID cards at their new location can request for card transfers.

The National Identity Management Commission (NIMC) has provided guidelines on how to go about that.

Requirements for transfer

  1. Applicant must receive the card collection notification either via SMS or emails first, then proceed to the enrolment Centre where he/she would like to pick up the card, or visit any NIMC Centre nearest to him/her.
  2. Applicant must come along to the Centre with his/her NIN Slip, as well as evidence of notification (which could be via a text message, email or the NIMC portal).
  3. Applicant must make a card transfer request by filling a Card Transfer Form indicating where he/she now wants the card to be sent.

Service Fee: Currently free (a fee might be charged in future).

Timeline: Please confirm at your chosen Enrolment Centre.
