Enrolment of minors (below the age of 16 years) entails the steps below.
1The 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.
2Relevant documents proving the minor’s identity are then provided by the parent/guardian at an enrolment centre.
3The 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.
4An enrolment form is issued to be filled with the applicant’s required details.
5After 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)
