As schools prepare to go on a holiday countrywide, the National Identification & Registration Authority (NIRA) has today announced plans to continue with the exercise of registering all children below 16 years of age. 

this was revealed by Osborn Mushabe (Manger public Relations and corperate affairs) that since the holiday has just started, in order not to affect the exercise of registering students, NIRA has decided to go on with this exercise at their offices throughout the country.

“I would like to announce that NIRA will continue registering learners during the upcoming holiday season. The exercise will take place at the head office, Kololo Ceremonial Grounds, Monday to Sunday, 8:30am to 4:00pm, and at all NIRA offices throughout the country,”

Mushabe added that the exercise targets school-going children of all ages, but it is also open to young children who may not be school-going. 

“The exercise is aimed at providing various services, including first-time registration, issuance of National Identification Numbers (NINs) and National IDs for those who already registered update of information for those who acquired NINs when they were still young but have now made16 years as well as correction of errors”

He also urged Parents of children below 18 years who will be required to fill in a form for registration and attach copies of their National IDs and an original National ID of the person presenting the child for registration. Applicants who are 18 years and above are required to attach copies of their parent’s IDs and an LC letter with DISO / GISO clearance

He also revealed that National ID and NIN registration, NIRA will also offer registration for and issuance of birth certificates. We encourage all parents to bring their children for registration and issuance of National IDs and birth certificates. It is essential to note that first-time registration for a National ID or NIN is free of charge.
