Malaysians can now apply for a replacement of their MyKad without having to go to the NRD counters but can do so online through the National Registration Department's (NRD) official website.
Replacement applications involve
1. Damaged chips or cards
2. Normal replacement
3. Replace of lost MyKad, not more than five times
For the moment, payment online for replacement cards could only be made using credit cards. Payment through the e-Banking facility would be made available in the future.
Applications could be made through NRD's portal from 8am to 11pm on Monday to Friday, 8am to 2pm on Saturday and 8am to 9pm on Sunday.
Status of MyKad applications can be viewed online. Applicants can also select where to collect their card.
Leadtime for 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, reported Bernama.
