Fresh NIN Registration?

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

  • Wear your face masks
  • Sanitise your hands
  • Maintain social distancing. Stand at least 6 feet from the person closest to you especially if on a queue

Failure by some Nigerians to adhere to this has made the NIMC shut down some of its centres.
