NRIs with valid Indian passport can apply for Aadhaar on arrival, without 182 day waiting period


According to sources following the notification, the Unique Identification Authority of india (UIDAI) has also come out with a circular stating that "NRI after his arrival in india, shall be entitled to obtain Aadhaar number".


The modalities for application remain more or less unchanged, a UIDAI source said adding that NRIs with Indian passport can now apply for biometric ID on arrival or by scheduling a prior appointment, thus doing away with the requirement for a mandatory 182-day waiting period.

UIDAI circular said valid Indian passport will be accepted as proof of identity, proof of address (PoA) and date of birth document.
