National Identity Card development process in Cameroon


To obtain a national identity card, the citizen must go to an identification station. More than two hundred (200) identification posts are currently operational in the Public Security Commissariats and the Special Commissariats. The National Security also has twenty (20) mobile identification stations based in the chief towns (headquaters) of each regions.

At the identification station, the citizen applicant must only pay the amount required by the regulations in force namely 2800 Francs CFA. In addition to this sum, he must provide documents according to the following scenarios:

1. In Case of a first request

The user must bring:
  • a certified copy of the birth certificate;
  • a copy of the marriage certificate for married women issued by the administrative or municipal authority;
  • a documentary proof of the profession, if applicable;
  • a certificate of nationality signed by the President of the Court of First Instance.

2. In Case of Loss, theft or damage

The user must submit:
  • an attestation of loss declaration;
  • a photocopy of the lost card;
  • a certified copy of the birth certificate;
  • a certificate of nationality signed by the President of the Court of First Instance if the lost card emanates from the old system of enrollment.

3. Expiry cases

the user must provide:
  • the expired National Identity Card ;
  • a copy of the marriage certificate for married women;
  • a voucher of the profession;
  • a certified copy of the birth certificate;
  • a certificate of nationality signed by the President of the Court of First Instance if the expired card emanates from the old system of enrollment.
After subscribing to the request for the National Identity Card, a temporary identity document is issued to the user. It should be recalled that the possession of the temporary identity document constitutes a presumption of identity. The validity of the said temporary identity title is 03 months, possibly renewable once. In no case can a duplicate of the National Identity Card be issued. The user holding a provisional identity card, also called a receipt, must keep it carefully because, the National Identity Card is withdrawn against the return of the latter in the identification station where the applicant dropped his file.

For any difficulty or hassle encountered in the process of applying for the issue or withdrawal of the national identity card, you can call the public utility number, the "1500", operational throughout the national territory, free of charge , 24 hours a day, 7 days a week
