Embassy lost my CNIC how to apply for a duplicate at NADRA
Just a few days ago I renewed my CNIC and today someone at the Malaysian embassy lost it. They did not seem bothered by it. I would like to know the process for getting a duplicate CNIC from NADRA. Do I need to prepare all the documents again same as I did for the renewal?
Duplicate CNIC from NADRA is easier than a renewal. Well just one difficult part that is registering a FIR with the police. Once the FIR is lodged just go to NADRA office with the FIR and a copy of your old CNIC. If you do not have a copy of your CNIC then take a copy of each of your parents CNIC’s. Also I would suggest making a copy or two of the FIR.
NADRA will issue you a token then take your picture and biometrics (fingerprints).
Step by step:
- Register FIR at nearest police station
- Photocopy FIR
- Photocopy of your CNIC, if you do not have this get photocopies of your parents CNIC’s
Take these to NADRA
- Get Token
- Take picture
- Take fingerprints
- Your Done!
