1.17 Aadhar Card for Non-resident Indian

UID, or Unique Identification Card as it is also called, an Aadhar Card can be availed by residents as well as non-residents of India.

Procedure for NRIs to Avail an Aadhar Card

The requirements and procedure to avail an Aadhar card for an NRI is comparable to the process that an Indian resident has to go through.

You will require visiting the official website of UIDAI or the enrolment centers approved by it to apply for the Aadhar Card online or offline. Following are the steps through which an NRI can avail an Aadhar card:

Submission of Documents:

The first step to availing an Aadhar card is to submit all the relevant documents that build your identity as a non-resident Indian.

The documents you will have to furnish will include your birth certificate, photo ID card, and school certificate.

NRIs will also be asked to produce the connection they have with another country where they hold a Green Card. The documents will then be verified by the officials to determine either or not you are eligible for an Aadhar card.

Finger-Tip Scanning

After you have submitted your documents, you will be called for a biometric scanning where all ten of your fingers will be scanned to establish your unique identity.

The biometric scan is necessary to ensure that your identification is unique and accurate, so you will personally have to visit the Aadhaar card enrollment center to complete the process.

Iris Scanning

Your fingertips will not be the only thing being scanned to establish your perfect identity. The authorities will also scan your iris to ensure that your identity will never have the risk of being confused with someone else’s.

The iris scanning will also be held in the Aadhaar enrolment center after your fingertips have been scanned.

Photograph

Once you have completed the scanning procedures, you will have to have your photo taken by the web-camera at the enrolment center. The photo will then be added to your Aadhaar documents, and you will receive your Aadhaar Card from the UIDAI.

The photo will then be added to your Aadhaar documents, and you will receive your Aadhaar Card from the UIDAI.
