National Identification and Registration Authority-NIRA

The National Identification and Registration Authority is mandated by the Registration of Persons Act 2015 to carry out different functions.  On the other hand, Vision 2040 reiterates Uganda’s desire to have world class infrastructure and services, and modern technology to improve productivity and production. Against this background, the core services of the National Identification and Registration Authority are:

Creation of the National Identification Register:

The Authority commits to creating and maintaining a current, accurate and complete data bank from which the National Identification Register can be extracted. This involves registering citizens, alien residents including Births, Deaths and Adoption Order Registrations. This will help in the accurate and well planned delivery of Government services across the country.

Issuance of Certificates:

The Authority issues certificates of Births, Deaths and Adoption orders as is mandated under the Registration of Persons Act 2015.  NIRA will open other service points across the country until the goal to cover the entire country is covered.

Issuance of the National and Alien Identification Cards:

The Authority will issue National Identity Cards to Residents and Alien Identity Cards to Aliens after a thorough Identification and Registration exercise. To date, issuance of National Identity Cards is going on at District Level across the country.
