The National Database and Registration Authority (Nadra) launched its ID services to Pakistani citizens’ mobile screens on Thursday with a beta release of its next-generation Pak ID Mobile App.
“Citizens can now process applications of their identity card and documents using this app,” a statement issued by the top database authority said.
It should be noted that after completing the entire application process through the app from the comfort of their home, people can get their ID documents delivered to their doorstep.
“With the Pak ID mobile app, citizens can now apply for their identity documents including CNIC, family registration certificate without visiting Nadra offices, avoiding long queues and long waiting hours,” the statement mentioned.

Speaking on the occasion, Nadra Chairman Tariq Malik stated that the latest version of Pak ID Mobile includes a built-in document recognition system and contactless biometric verification, allowing users to enjoy a holistic experience by uploading and submitting documents, capturing photographs and fingerprints, and adding digital signatures using smartphones.
“This innovative approach is a significant step towards achieving the goal of Digital Pakistan by improving service delivery,” he added.
It should be noted that the app promises to provide maximum convenience to all citizens living both within and outside of the country.
It may also add another feather to Nadra’s cap, which already includes the distinction of being the world’s first nation to implement multi-biometric capturing and online document submission.
Malik said: “The app has been built using contactless technology which truly digitalises the experience of getting ID documents just using a smartphone.”
