The National Identity Card or NID was made more than a decade ago. The pictures that were used then do not match the current picture of many. Again, many pictures are quite ugly. The result is the need to change ugly or old pictures. This work is done online from the website. In addition to changing the picture, a lot of old information about NID can be updated.
In order to change the picture or update the information of the National Identity Card, first, you have to go to the website of the NID department of the Election Commission (https://services.nidw.gov.bd/registration) and register.
The https format may cause ‘This Connection is Untrusted’ to appear in the Firefox browser when accessing this website. In that case, click on ‘I Understand the Risks’. After clicking ‘Add Exception’ and then clicking ‘Confirm Security Exception’ the site will open.
