Registration as Overseas Indian Electors


The Election Commission of India (ECI) has created a facility for online electoral registration of NRIs at National Voters’ Service Portal of ECI.  

Every citizen of India whose name is not included in the electoral roll, and who has not acquired the citizenship of any other country and is away from his place of ordinary residence in India owing to his employment, education or otherwise outside India (whether temporarily or not) is entitled to have his name registered in the electoral roll in the constituency in which his place of residence in India as mentioned in his passport is located.

An eligible NRI may have his name registered in the electoral roll by filing an application in Form 6A (Download here) in person before the Electoral Registration Officer concerned along with requisite documents or by sending the application to him by post or by filing it online at the National Voters’ Service Portal [http://www.nvsp.in/].

You may click here for FAQs for registering as an overseas (NRI) elector.  FAQs are also available at the website of Election Commission of India [http://eci.nic.in/eci_main/nri/NRI_2122013.pdf].  

All eligible Indian citizens living in Kazakhstan may avail this facility to register themselves in the electoral rolls of their respective constituences.
