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.

Benefits of NIN

Your National Identification Number (NIN) is used to tie together all records about you – demographic data, fingerprints, head-to-shoulder facial picture, other biometric data and digital signature – in the National Identity Database making it relatively easy to confirm and verify your identity when you engage in travels and transactions.

Other benefits are:

  1. International Passport issuance & renewal
  2. Bank account opening in Nigeria
  3. Business registration at CAC in Nigeria
  4. Tax filling and documentation in Nigeria
  5. Affirm identity anytime, anywhere, in the world
