You can apply for your National ID Card at any office of the Ministry of Home Affairs and Immigration (MHAI). All applications are sent to the MHAI head office in Windhoek for further processing. Your fingerprints will be matched with those already on record or entered into the National Population Registration System. Your application will then be processed and once issued, your ID card will be forwarded to the office where you applied for you to collect.
It takes 12 working days to process an Identity Document (ID), provided that all necessary supporting documents are attached.
- IDs will not be ready for collection before the 12 days have lapsed and you can inquire for your ID by contacting our contact no. Head Office: +264 61 292 2111 or through our Online ID Application Status System
