Get your NIN


After enrolment, NIMC issues a National Identification Number (NIN), which is a unique number that identifies an individual for life. It’s used to match a person’s biometric data and other information in the National Identity Database (NIDB). NIN is a number that is used to link all of a person’s information in Nigeria’s national database and to verify their identification. All citizens and legal residents in Nigeria, from age zero (birth) and above are eligible to enroll for their NIN.

The first step is to schedule an appointment and pay for your enrollment using this website.

Visit the center you choose in step 1 to have your biometrics taken and to enroll.

For your biometrics checks, we’ll work with NIMC. You will get your NIN through email or SMS once it has been finished.

Requirements for Pre-enrollment

We’ll use your Nigerian International Passport AND, if you have one, your Bank Verification Number (BVN) to authenticate your identity at the Enrolment Center.
