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?

Dr John Lahai drops a real clanger...lecturers react

Evidence has surfaced that contradicts one of John Idriss Lahai's claims. And, as I've already stated, it's a clear sign that not everything he writes is true. He is doing the right thing, but depending entirely on rumor may jeopardize his kindness to Sierra Leone. Brima Ronnie Kargbo, a youthful and charismatic Sierra Leonean who works for NATCOM as the Director of Administration and Human Resource Management Director, was featured in a publication by John Idriss Lahai. In an exact paraphrase of his "nemakui" English writing skills, Lahai claimed: "Brima Ronnie Kargbo indeed started his Bachelor's degree studies at Njala University. It is also true that he abandoned the course halfway and moved to the UK (this was during the latter part of the civil war: 1996/1997-ish). As such, what is not true, and for which Njala University should investigate (to verify my claim) and, thereafter, sue Brima Ronnie Kargbo for forgery of their certificate (a
