“One of my colleagues has shared this procedure with me. In fact, he wrote this whole article.” I appreciate the step taken by the Pakistan Consulate Jeddah by introducing the system of scheduling appointments online to make National Identity Card for Overseas Pakistanis (NICOP).
Last year when I went to NADRA Office to make NICOP for my son, the procedure to get a token was very difficult. I was in the queue from 6 am in the morning, they started giving tokens at 8 am but I could not get that token.
Ultimately, I had to use my sources to get token. Now you don’t have to do all this as with the introduction of online appointment system, the procedure will be eased out.
I have explained the procedure to book an appointment with NADRA Office Jeddah for NICOP below.
First, you need to open the website of Pakistan Consulate Jeddah. The link of that website is here http://www.mofa.gov.pk/jeddah/.
Once the website is opened, you need to look for a link to “Online Appointment System” from the links given on the left side of your computer screen.
A new page will open where you have to choose “NICOP” in the first tab and “Consular Services NICOP” in the second tab. After selecting this data, just click on the “Next” button.
In the next window, you will have to select the date when you want to take an appointment. In case, no appointment available on that date, following message will appear on your computer screen.
“There are no available appointment hours for the selected date. Please choose another date.”
If appointments are available, different timings will appear on your screen from where you can select your desired timing.
In the next step, you will have to enter all the related details e.g. First Name, Last Name, Address, City, Phone Number and Email Address and click on the “Next” button.
In the next step, you will have to just confirm the date and time of appointment. You will be sent an email to the email address provided.
Make sure you carry the print of that email to the NADRA office on the day of the appointment. Try to be there at least 15 minutes before the appointment time.
