NADRA Smart ID Card Renewal Fee Update 2023

The National Database Registration Authority (NADRA) of Pakistan is responsible for issuing National Identity Cards (NICs) to its citizens. These cards, integrating modern technology with robust business protocols, ensure authenticity and validity nationwide, identifiable by a unique 13-digit number.

The NIC is an essential document for Pakistani citizens, required for various official procedures including obtaining a driving license, National Tax Number (NTN), bank accounts, passports, and mobile phone connections. All Pakistani citizens aged 18 and above are eligible for the NIC.

When the computerized NIC reaches its expiry date, renewal becomes necessary. The updated fee structure for renewing these IDs is as follows for December 2023:

  • Standard Renewal Fee: Rs. 750
  • Urgent Renewal Fee: Rs. 1,500
  • Executive Renewal Service: Rs. 2,500
