The Unique Identification Authority of India (UIDAI) issues the Aadhaar, a unique identity card. For Indian citizens, it is a 12-digit unique identification number that acts as confirmation of residence and identity. Aadhaar applications and approvals are now available to Non-Resident Indians (NRIs). NRIs must provide biometric and demographic data as part of the Aadhaar enrollment procedure, which is the same as it is for locals.
The biometric and demographic information gathered throughout the Aadhaar enrollment process, such as fingerprints, iris scans, and photos, forms the basis of the Aadhaar card.
The steps to get an Aadhaar number for their children, as well as a detailed process for non-resident Indians, are provided below. Any Aadhaar Kendra can accept applications for Aadhaar from NRIs, regardless of age, as long as they have a current Indian passport.
What is the enrollment procedure for NRIs?
