Enrolment of minors (below the age of 16 years) entails the steps below.

1
The applicant has to be accompanied by a parent or guardian who has a NIN. Otherwise, the parent or guardian will first have to enrol and obtain his/her NIN.
2
Relevant documents proving the minor’s identity are then provided by the parent/guardian at an enrolment centre.
3
The applicant’s parent/guardian provides his/her initially issued NIN slip or provides the NIN for verification. Please note that the parent/guardian’s NIN must be correctly captured to avoid delay in NIN issuance to the applicant.
4
An enrolment form is issued to be filled with the applicant’s required details.
5
After successfully completing the enrolment form, the applicant’s demographic data is captured.

MINORS’ SUPPORTING DOCUMENTS FOR ENROLMENT

  • Birth Certificate
  • School admission letter or any other relevant school documents
  • NHIS Identity Card
  • Parent/Guardian’s NIN (this alone suffices in extreme cases)
