Our process - NIN IN 3 EASY STEPS

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.

Pre-enrollment/Appointment booking

The pre-enrollment/appointment booking process is an important step in the process of enrolling for a NIN . It helps to ensure that the NIMC can efficiently process the applicants application and issue them with a NIN as quickly as possible.

The National Identity Management Commission (NIMC) is responsible for issuing National Identification Numbers (NINs) to all citizens and legal residents of Nigeria. The NIN is a unique 11-digit number that is used to identify individuals in Nigeria.

Once the applicant has completed the pre-enrollment process, they will receive an appointment confirmation slip. The applicant must bring this confirmation slip to their appointment. They must also bring a valid identification document to their appointment.

Included in this phase

  • Data verification
  • Appointment scheduling
  • Confirmation

Prerequisites - Requirements for Pre-enrollment

We’ll use your Nigerian International Passport, if you have one, to authenticate your identity at the Enrolment Center. Other supplementary papers that can be accepted are listed below:

  • Nigerian International Passport. Your Nigerian International Passport serves as a primary document for identity authentication during pre-enrollment.
  • Bank Verification Number (BVN). If you possess a Bank Verification Number (BVN), it can be used alongside your Nigerian International Passport to further authenticate your identity.
  • Old Nigerian National ID Card. An old Nigerian National ID Card can be presented as supplementary proof of identity during pre-enrollment. This card indicates your previous enrollment and can help verify your identity.
  • Nigerian Voters Card. Your Nigerian Voters Card is another valid supplementary document that can support your identity verification. It is a government-issued card that confirms your eligibility to vote.
  • Nigerian Birth Certificate. Providing your Nigerian Birth Certificate as a supplementary document is an effective way to establish your identity. This official document contains important information about your birth and parentage.
