Online application for replacement of MyKad

Online application for replacement of MyKadPUTRAJAYA - The public can now apply online for a replacement of their MyKad through the National Registration Department's (NRD) official website (www.jpn.gov.my).

Deputy Home Minister Datuk Wira Abu Seman Yusop said this would also help reduce congestion at the NRD headquarters and its branches.

“There are three different kinds of replacement applications - for damaged chips or cards, normal replacement and replacement of lost MyKad not more than five times,” he told reporters after officiating at the 2010 Excellent Service Awards 2010 presentation to 341 NRD staff here Wednesday.

Abu Seman said online payment for replacement cards could be made using credit cards, while the e-Banking facility would be made available in the future.

He said applications could be made through NRD's portal from 8am to 11pm from Monday to Friday, 8am to 2pm on Saturday and 8am to 9pm on Sunday.

“Applicants can view the status of their MyKad applications online and select where to collect their cards from.”

He said so far, the department had received 15 applications since the trial run on April 15, including one from a Malaysian in Australia.

The time taken to process the online applications is the same as for counter applications, which is 24 hours for those collecting from the Putrajaya NRD, 10 working days from any other NRD office in the peninsula and 30 working days from any NRD branch in Sabah, Sarawak or Labuan.
