The National Identification Number (NIN) is FREE!
The National e-ID Card is FREE!

It is SAFER to do Online Pre- enrolment yourself using Personal Computers, Internet enabled telephones and other devices, then heading to a NIMC enrolment centre near you.
Beware of Fraudsters posing as National Identity Management Commission (NIMC)  Agents or Staff.
Do not pay money to anyone offering to help you speed up the NIN enrolment process or get the National e-ID  card for you. You have to enrol and collect your card, when it is ready, yourself.
Collection of NIN and Card can ONLY be done at NIMC Enrolment Centres nationwide.
For further enquiries, please send mail to
The Commission is also currently NOT engaged in any recruitment exercise, further information can be gotten on the Careers page.
