adhar Card NRIs Documents Required
·         Usually applicants need to carry 1 government approved identity prove (PAN Card/ Voter ID card/ Driving License/ Passport).
·         And one Address proof document (Passport/ Ration Card/ Utility Bills/ Voter Id card)

In case the applicant doesn’t have these valid documents
Then the applicant can enroll using the government approved documents of the existing members within their family, who can act as his/her guarantees. In case the applicant happens to be the Family Head, then he/she needs to apply for these entitled documents first before applying for the aadhar card. Once he/she has his/her identity and address proof, they can be used for introducing other member of the family for the aadhar card NRIs enrollment procedure.

If the applicant doesnt have any entitlement documents available at all
In such scenarios the applicants can take help from the introducers at the aadhar enrollment center. We recommend applicants to contact their registration office for any further details regarding such situation.

Where to find the aadhar Card NRIs application form?
Applicants can find their aadhar card application at any aadhar registration center. Applicants can also download the application online from the official website of aadhar.
But make sure to fill the online application properly and also make a Xerox copy of the application before going to the aadhar center to save your time.

Aadhar card NRIs registration procedure at the Aadhar center
·        At the aadhar center, the officers will click a photo of applicant and also collect his finger prints and iris scan, to store his/her bio-metric data.  Note that applicants are allowed to review their details at the time of enrollment, so you can make any correction at the time if necessary. So, don’t shy away, from reviewing your details. As you will have to take a flight to India again if make any mistakes on your aadhar card.
  Applicants will be given a temporary enrollment number with an acknowledgement slip as a proof can he/she has indeed registered for the aadhar card.  Make sure to keep this acknowledgement slip properly as, you might require the enrollment number and other details mentioned on the list, if you wish to download aadhar card online. This slip is especially important for aadhar card NRIs as they would, probably want to use the aadhar online services, rather than visit the country every time they want to use this document.

         In case there are any errors or issues in your aadhar card you can simply update that information using an online Aadhar card update procedure through their official website.
