The Child Registration Certificate (CRC) or also known as B-Form is an official document used to register minors under the age of 18 years.
The B-Form is required for a variety of purposes including:
- Enrolling a child in school or college
- Obtaining a passport or visa for international travel
- Applying for government services such as health care and social welfare benefits
- Registering a child’s name in property or inheritance records
- Opening a bank account or obtaining other financial services
- Voting in elections once the child reaches 18 years of age.
To obtain a B-Form for a child, parents or legal guardians must submit an application to a National Database and Registration Authority (NADRA) Office along with the required documents including the child’s Birth Certificate, the father’s National Identity Card (NIC), and the mother’s NIC.
Where to apply for CRC or B-Form?
You can apply for CRC or B-Form by going to the nearest NADRA Registration Center (NRC).
Following are the steps which you will be following at the NRC:
- You will be issued a token
