  • Visit NIRA offices at Kololo Independence Grounds in Kampala with your identification documents
  • Pay UGX.1,000 (Approx. Kes.30) via the bank
  • Fill a form requesting SIM replacement at NIRA
  • Wait five working days for your request to be processed
  • Get a letter from NIRA directing your service provider to replace your SIM
  • Visit your mobile service provider and fill a new SIM registration form with biometrics and a passport photo
