How to Apply for Aadhaar Card an NRI
Aadhaar Card is a unique identification 12-digit number assigned to every Indian. This number is issued to all Indians after completing a comprehensive verification process laid down by UIDAI. The process captures the demographic and biometric profile of the individual such as name, gender, address, mobile number, iris scan, fingerprints and facial photograph. The introduction of Aadhaar Card will help in removing fake and duplicate identities and offer more transparency in the system. If an Indian citizen has moved out of the country for the purpose of employment, education or other activities and has stayed in the country for less than 182 days in the preceding financial year, he or she becomes an NRI (Non-Resident Indian). Aadhaar Card can be applied by NRIs as well. There is a specific process for them which can be read further below.
The application process for Aadhaar Card by NRIs is similar to that of an Indian Resident. However, there may be more documents to be submitted. The NRI applicant can visit the UIDAI website to search for the nearest Aadhaar Enrolment centre to his/her home. Thereafter, the application form needs to be duly filled out and submitted along with the required documents. Detailed application process is mentioned below.
1. Search for the nearest Aadhaar Enrolment Centre
UIDAI has listed out all Aadhaar Enrolment Centres across the country. One needs to enter the City, Pin Code and Search Box to find the nearest centre to your residential address.
2. Enrol for Aadhaar Card
3. Biometric Submission
4. Collect Acknowledgement Form
After submission of the above details, an acknowledgement receipt is given. The acknowledgement receipt includes the date and time stamp. With the enrolment number, one can track the progress of the Aadhaar Card online. If you have lost the Enrolment ID number, it can be retrieved from the UIDAI website.
The average processing time for an Aadhaar Card is 60 to 90 days. The digital copy of the original Aadhaar Card is available for download even as an NRI applicant.
The following documents are required while submitting your Aadhaar Card application as an NRI:
With effect from 1st July, 2017, it is mandatory to quote your Aadhaar Card Number/Aadhaar Enrolment ID while filing income tax returns and submitting an application for PAN Card.

The mandatory quoting of Aadhaar Number or the Aadhaar Enrolment ID is applicable to all those individuals who are eligible to get the Aadhaar Number.
Aadhaar Card can be applied only by a resident of the country. A resident is defined as someone who has stayed in the country for a minimum of 182 days in a 12-month period immediately before the application of Aadhaar. It is important to note here that this Section 139AA of the Income Tax Act, 1961 is not applicable to individuals who are not residents. NRIs need not submit their Aadhaar Number while filing Income Tax Returns from July 2017 onwards.
