GECOM starts distribution of National ID cards


The Guyana Elections Commission has commenced the  distribution of National Identification Cards at all its Registration Offices countrywide with effect from Monday,  28th November, 2022. 

Persons who completed registration transactions during the Cycle of Continuous Registration held during the  period March, 2022 – May, 2022 and the Claims and Objections Exercise which was held during the period  August, 2022 – September, 2022 respectively are advised that they can uplift their National Identification Cards from the GECOM Registration Office where the transaction was done during the following working  hours: 

Monday – Thursday 8:00hrs – 12:00hrs 

13:00hrs – 16:30hrs 

Friday 8:00hrs – 12:00hrs 

13:00hrs – 15:30hrs 

The Commission is also advising persons that authorizations will not be accepted and, in this regard, registrants must uplift their ID Cards personally in accordance with GECOM’s standard operating procedures  in relation to the verification of identity, transparency, and accountability. Specifically, only persons who would  have completed new registration transactions, changes to their registration particulars, or applied for a  replacement are required to visit the Registration Office. 

Additionally, the Commission is also urging persons who would have conducted transactions in previous  registration exercises prior to 2022 and have not yet uplifted their National Identification Cards to do so  immediately. (GECOM press release)
