Behold How To Check The Status of Kenya National Identity Card Free

Kenyans can now check their government issued National Identity Card status online, just like Nigerians. This platform is set out to help registered individuals, check if their National Identity Card has been successfully processed to be collected. The Government who saw the need of developing NIMC website, knew that millions of people are in need of this very card, and didn’t hesitate in providing a medium for each and every individual to check his/her status considering whether the card is ready or not, if really you are a registered member. And as you may know, since this development was initiated, things have been moving smoothly, as 100 million of Nigerians and 13 million Kenyans who are yet to collect their card, can now verify the status of their registered National Identity Card just for free.

So in this post, I have provided a short guide to see you through on how to check your National Identity Card as an applicant from Kenya. Meanwhile, Nigerians can check the status of their National Identity Card(NIMC) online from here.

Before one can check the status of his or her National Identity Card from online NIMC website, that person is expected to be registered and as well done with any offline process of form filling. So any applicant from Kenya is expected to wait for like 5 – 8 weeks for the identification card to be processed immediately after the registration. But before then, every applicant is given a slip that will temporary serve as National Identity card until the main plastic card is ready to be collected.  

So in other not to waste your time going to any nearby NIMC office often and on, may be just for the District officer working there to check whether your card is ready or not, all you need to do is just to pick up your smartphone device or Laptop/PC and visit NIMC website for your card status details/information.
