Method 2: Using NIDA’s website
If you have access to the internet then you might as well use your browser to get your National ID Number. I prefer this method because it allows you to print a copy of your National ID card as well. See how to print a copy of National ID card from NIDA in Tanzania for more details.

Method 3: Visiting NIDA regional offices
This is the last, least preferred method of getting your National ID Number from NIDA. For those who have tried method one and did not get their National ID Number then they should try this third method. Here they will be supposed to visit any nearby NIDA regional office and provide their details.
The staff of NIDA will fetch the National ID Number from NIDA’s database. If your details are not in their database, they will advise your to fill registration form and go through the biometric scanning process
