Message from the ED

On behalf of the National Identification and Registration Authority (NIRA), whose principle responsibility is the establishment and maintenance of the National Identification Register, I am glad to welcome you to our website. I have no doubt that this platform will help our stakeholders and the general public to interact with us online and obtain information more readily about the activities and services of NIRA

National Identification and Registration Authority’s mandate as established by the Registration of Persons Act 2015 includes among others: the creation, management, maintenance and operation of the National Identification Register; the registration of all citizens of Uganda; the registration of non-citizens of Uganda who are lawfully residents in Uganda; the registration of births, deaths and adoption orders; assignment of a unique National Identification Number (NIN) to every person registered; issuance of National Identification Cards and Aliens’ Identification Cards and also provide access and use of information contained in the National Identification Register in accordance with Regulations issued by the Board after consultation with the Minister.

As NIRA, we are committed to achieve our objectives as derived from the mandate and serve our stakeholders and clients in a manner that responds to their needs.
