Waiting time to get your new Smart ID card

Collection and Issuance of the new Smart ID card
Upon successful registration for the Smart ID card, a Collection Slip will be handed over to the applicant who shall come in person after seven (7) days at the same National Identity Card Centre, together with the collection slip, to collect the Smart ID card.

The Collection slip will indicate the Collection date, Collection site and Payment fee (if any).
If, for administrative purposes, a citizen needs his/her  ID card prior to the collection  date of the ID card, a Memo can be obtained, upon request, from the Mauritius National Identity Card Centre for temporary use until the Smart ID card is issued. 


Police Memo must be dated less than 7 days.
