How to update the address on an Aadhaar Card online

Why should I update my Aadhaar card address?

There are a number of reasons you might need to update your address. Some of these could be:

  • You’ve changed your permanent address
  • You’ve moved to a different city, and want to vote in that city
  • Your old address is no longer convenient as an official proof of residence

Changing your address on your Aadhaar online

First up, you need to ensure your current mobile number is linked with your Aadhar Card. This should be the primary mobile number that you use for your banking and other official purposes.

  1. Go to myAadhaar Self-Service Portal
  2. Enter your Aadhaar number and type the captcha on the screen, generate your OTP, which you should get on your registered mobile number.
  3. Once you’re logged in, go to the main dashboard. Under ‘Services’ you’ll find the ‘Update Aadhaar Online’ option
  4. Go to the ‘update address’ option, and enter the new address 
  5. Reconfirm the address you have entered before clicking on ‘Proceed to Update Aadhaar’
  6. Your application will need to be verified, for which you need to upload a scanned copy of the supporting documents such as passport, Voter ID card, etc.
  7. As a last step you’ll need to pay ₹50 as a non-refundable fee.

Once your application is submitted you will receive an Update Request Number (URN). This unique number serves as an acknowledgment.

How to update the address on an Aadhaar Card offline?

  1. Google your nearest service centre and book an appointment. Most centres allow walk-ins as well.
  2. Take the physical copy of your Aadhaar correction form and fill in the relevant fields to update your address
  3. You can also download the form at home or work and fill it out before visiting the centre by clicking here
  4. Carry photocopies of your address proof along as they will need to be self-attested in the presence of the Aadhaar officer
  5. Pay the fees and receive your offline URN code

Even though the application is made offline, it can be tracked online using the URN. This usually happens in a matter of 3-5 business days. So, instead of visiting the Aadhaar centre you can check the status online or ask someone to do it on your behalf.

Frequently asked questions

How many days will it take to change the address in Aadhaar?

It’s faster when you do it online. As per the UIDAI site, over 90% of the online address update applications are cleared within 30 days.

Offline applications may take slightly longer though, with an upper limit of 90 working days. Furthermore, it is also dependent on how complete and accurate the details are that you have furnished. Errors may result in a need to clarify fields or an outright rejection of the application. If rejected, you will need to initiate the entire process again, and the fees will also need to be paid once more (since it is non-refundable). So, to save time and money, carefully ensure your application and the accompanying documents.

Can Aadhaar card address change be done online?

Yes. The prerequisite to applying online is ensuring that your current mobile number is linked to your Aadhaar Card. If this is done, then you can login to the UIDAI self-service portal and browse your way to the ‘Update Aadhaar Online’ section. 

Here, you will need to select the field to be updated (the address, in this case). Enter the new address, use the preview to check how it will appear on the card, and upload the e-copy of the supporting documents. To complete your application, pay the online fee using debit card, UPI, or net banking.
