Remember the time when had to wait for days in order to collect our identification cards (IC)? Especially for late December babies turning 13, the struggle of leaving the IC column in forms blank was real.
Well, fret no more! Because you can now get your MyKad within 45 minutes after submitting your application at selected National Registration Department (NRD) offices from April 1. That’s less than an hour!
Deputy Prime Minister Datuk Seri Dr Ahmad Zahid Hamidi announced the latest transformation initiative by the department in issuing identification documents as part of his Home Ministry portfolio at the NRD programme in Dewan Millennium on March 15, The Star reported.
“Back then, it used to take months when it came to getting a new identity card after applying. Then the time was shortened to a month, and then again to five days. A MyKad can now be ready within 45 minutes,” he said during his speech.
The various transformations carried out by NRD in a relatively short time have been taken into acknowledgement by world bodies as part of the best national initiatives in the issuance of identification documents.
“Upgrades are done every year to avoid imitation or fraud. We will not compromise in terms of the safety and security aspects of the MyKad,” he said.
He added that 56 out of 231 NRD offices nationwide have their own MyKad printing machine. Besides that, a mobile NRD bus printing hub in issuing MyKad has also been launched at the event. Sounds cool!
No more lining up and waiting endlessly for our MyKad anymore!
