On Monday, January 30, NCRA will begin issuing the much anticipated biometric ID cards.


How can you obtain the Biometric National Identity Card beginning on Monday, January 30, and moving forward?

You must register with the NCRA before submitting a request for your National biometric ID Card in order to obtain your Biometric National ID Card. You can obtain your National biometric ID Card, however, if you have already registered with the NCRA. Simply fill out an application at the NCRA office that is closest to you. It could be in Makeni, Kabala, Pujehun, etc.

The securitized identity card comes in three different categories.
-The National ID Card: This ID Card is purely for citizens of Sierra Leone, and The cost to produce a national identity card costs 140 NLe.

-The ECOWAS Identity Card. Two types of ID Cards fall under this category, which is produced on demand.
The ID card issued by ECOWAS to Sierra Leoneans and those who are not Sierra Leoneans. Additionally, production costs range from Le240 for citizens of Sierra Leone to Le400 for non-citizens. The ECOWAS ID is significant because it will facilitate free trade between ECOWAS members, allow for banking transactions, and serve as a substitute for a passport for travel inside those ECOWAS nations.

-A non-national ID card. Residents of Sierra Leone who are not citizens of Sierra Leone are required to obtain this type of identity card. The identity card costs NLe 2000, and it can be used for work and resident permits, immigration services, and other things.


  1. Thanks for sharing through this vital information about the long awaiting Distributions of the ID Cards. My question is why should citizens pay the Sum of Le120 for production when it was said earlier before this publication that it was free during the NCRA merge Registration with NEC in 1017?

  2. 2017 I beg your pardon

Dr. John Idriss Lahai, the whistle-blower for fake degrees is "Social Medially dead". If you recall, in the year 2022, Dr. John Idriss Lahai, a whistle-blower who exposed a phony degree, attracted the attention of every patriotic Sierra Leonean. His activity came to light after it was found that numerous Sierra Leoneans had received honorary PhDs from a Waterloo, Western Rural District postsecondary institution that was not accredited. Even well-known Sierra Leoneans, including the previous Inspector General of Police, were given honorary PhDs by the university known as Dominion University. When it was determined that the aforementioned university lacks the integrity to grant such a credential, the IG subsequently declined the offer.

In early January of this year, he posted in a WhatsApp group in Kambia that he had scholarship chances and could help people acquire government pin codes, among other things, but that the offer was only valid for those from the South and east.   Someone sent him NLe1,500 for overseas study without realizing he was a scammer.  The scammer claimed that the entire application process for the scholarship cost 3,000 New Leone.  Later, the contacted person realized that he was not who he had been representing himself to be, and he immediately blocked the victim of his syndicate.  He once more perpetrated the same crime against Molai, another individual, and someone else.  In the pretense of an international scholarship, he demanded 3000 New Leones from each person. He accepted the cash and fled without telling them where he was.  The m
