LASRRA stands for Lagos State Residents Registration Agency and is a parastatal of Lagos State Ministry of Science and Technology.
The Agency was established in 2011 and is responsible for the registration of all residents who currently reside in the State, irrespective of age, gender, religion, ethnic origin, nationality, economic, social or financial status.
Why do we need to register?
The data collected by Lagos State Resident Registration Agency (LASRRA) on the people living in the State, provides government with credible information on the characteristics of the citizenry of the State, which enables more efficient and effective planning and formulation of policies to meet the needs of the people.
What is the Residents Register?
The Residents’ Register is an electronic database, currently being developed by the Lagos State Residents Registration Agency (LASRRA).
It contains demographic and biometric information of all residents of Lagos State.
The Residents’ Register is a governmental, centralized, trustworthy and comprehensive source of information that would assist the State Government with decision-making process and allocation of resources as it contains important and vital information about residents of the State.
What do I need to register – Documents

Suitable documentation includes:

What is the Lagos State Residency card?
The resident card is formal proof that the card owner is a registered resident of Lagos State.
Each authenticated registered resident is issued a unique identification number printed on a smart Permanent Resident Card (PRC).
This number serves as a reference for the respective individual in his/her identity-linked transactions with government bodies.
What is the difference between the Temporary & Permanent Card?
Upon completing registration, each person registered is issued a temporary card. This serves as a receipt of registration and contains the tracking number.
Registrants must retain their temporary cards until it is exchanged for a permanent smart card.
The permanent smart card is a General Multi-Purpose Card (GMPC)

How do I register?
There are multiple modes of registration.
- With the classic enrolment process, residents simply visit designated enrolment stations with evidence of identity and proof of address, where Agents will guide them through the enrolment process. They will also be required to physically pick up their cards at designated pickup locations when the cards are ready.
- Residents may opt to visit the online portal to pre-enrol and then visit approved enrolment stations for document sighting and biometrics to be captured. After data processing, residents will be notified to pick up their cards from designated locations.
For a change of address, do you need to register again?
You do not need to register again when you change your address. Just inform your nearest registration station with supporting evidence of your new address and your records on the database will be updated.
How do we receive the resident card?
The Temporary Card is issued to Residents’ immediately upon a successful registration.
The Permanent Card is issued after the Registration record has been verified as unique and a bank account has been opened by a partner banking institution.
Permanent Cards are collected from our partner banking institution.
Using the contact details provided at the time of registration, registered Residents will be notified by SMS to collect their GMPC at the bank branch nearest to their place of residence.
