The Federal Government of Nigeria, in its attempt to stop criminal activities, through the Nigerian Communications Commission (NCC) ordered that all Subscriber Identification Modules (SIM) be linked to the National Identity Number (NIN) .

This is to allow government agencies and other accredited agencies to access anyone’s details from the national database when necessary.

New registration?

If you have never registered for the NIN, you will need to visit any nearest National Identity Management Commission (NIMC) office. However, when visiting, be sure to adhere to all COVID-19 prevention protocols:

  1. Wear your masks
  2. Disinfect your hands
  3. Maintain social distancing. Stand at least 6 feet from the person closest to you, especially if you are in a queue

The failure of some Nigerians to adhere to this has caused the NIMC to close some of its centers.

To speed up your registration process, please complete the registration form before visiting any NIMC office. You can download it here: https://www.commtech.gov.ng/Doc/enrolment_form_v2.pdf
