NIM Sim Registration:Check Your NIN From Your Mobile Phone

The National Identity Management Commission(NIMC)has asked Nigerians to dial *346# on their mobile phones to retrieve their NIN number.

This development came about after the Nigerian Communications Commission [NCC] gave two weeks deadline for subscribers to provide valid National Identification Number (NIN) to update their SIM registration records.
The *346# USSD code is available for MTN, Airtel, 9mobile and Glo network subscribers.

The NCC had introduced a new measure for mobile phone SIM users, and part of it is a compulsory update of valid National Identification Number [NIN].

For subscribers that haven’t yet registered for the National Identity Card, here is a step by step guide on how to go about it.

Step 1

Fill the NIMC Pre Enrolment online form on the NIMC portal https://penrol.nimc.gov.ng/loginForm.tpl.html.php
Input the correct information on all the mandatory fields on the form.
Download and print your Pre Enrolment Slip.

Step 2

Submit Your Application

Walk into the nearest NIMC Registration Centre with any one of the following Original and Valid supporting documents.

  • Old National ID Card.
  • Driver’s License.
  • Voter’s card (Temporary or Permanent)
  • Nigerian International passport.
  • Certificate of Origin.
  • Attestation letter from a prominent ruler in your community.
  • Birth certificate.
  • Declaration of age

At the Enrollment Center, you will be directed to one counter where Enrollment Officers will verify all the details on your application.
If your application is in order, the Enrollment officer will guide you on how to proceed with the capture of biometrics (ten finger prints and facial image), and you will collect the Transaction ID Slip as evidence of the transaction.

Step 3

Collect your NIN

The normal time frame to get your National Identification Number (NIN) Slip is within 2 to 3 working days from the time you captured your biometric details at the enrollment center.
The issuance of NIN may take longer time for some cases.
You may need to keep the Transaction ID Slip very well inorder to present it at the time of collection of NIN Slip.

How to know if your Nimc card is ready

Visit the National Identity Management Commission [NIMC] website- www.nimc.gov.ng

Scroll down to the home page and click on ‘e-ID Card Status Portal’ to check if your card is ready, and if it is available at the activation centre.

Thereafter, fill in your first name, last name and your NIMC check tracking ID and hit the ‘check now’ icon button.
