Biometric verification for overseas Pakistanis


Biometric verification for overseas Pakistanis

Government of Pakistan is putting efforts day and night to chase to stand in digital government transformations ongoing globally and specifically in the region. The National Database & Registration Authority (NADRA) in Pakistan has launched online ID verification that enables a consular officer to verify the identity of citizens living abroad for power-of-attorney (POA) needs.

It will enable citizens living abroad (more than 9 million, according to NADRA) to upload scanned documents and pictures and also to undergo verification through the registration authority’s Pak-ID online biometric verification services.

To complete the process, applicants and two witnesses upload their paper-based data, which is verified through the national database in real time, according to the government.
