Instructions For NIN Sim Registration For Those In Nigeria


The Nigerian Communications Commission (NCC) has given telecommunications operators in the country two weeks to block all SIM cards that are not registered with the National Identity Numbers (NIN).
Failure to do so will lead to your line being blocked or disconnected by the 31st of December 2020.

However, to avoid going into a new year with a blocked sim, please read through this article carefully.









What is NIN?

NIN is a set of eleven digits assigned to an individual, by The National Identity Management Commission (NIMC), upon successful enrolment.

Enrolment consists of the recording of an individual’s demographic data and capture of the ten (10) fingerprints, head-to-shoulder facial picture, and digital signature.

The information is used to cross-check existing data in the National Identity Database to confirm that there is no previous entry of the same data.


How to Get your NIN?
 
If you have registered for your NIN, you should have your slip with you.

However, if you have misplaced it, you have to pay N500 through REMITA at any bank nearest to you; provide your Remita Teller to any NIMC Enrolment Centre (ERC) near you and request for a NIN slip print.

Alternatively, you can use the NIMC USSD service to retrieve it by following these steps:

Dial *346#; from the options displayed, select “NIN Retrieval”, by typing in ‘1’, if you are using the same phone number you enrolled with for your number.

Follow the steps displayed on your screen and provide the required inputs

Note: Using this service attracts N20 (twenty naira) fee-only (deducted from your phone credit balance).

However, Glo users might encounter some difficulties, a message from the service provider at about 10: 53 am today stated that their subscribers would not be able to retrieve NIN for now:

The message reads: “The code to verify your NIN is *346 on the registered mobile number. This service cost N20. However, you would be unable to retrieve your NIN on Glo for now. Sorry for this inconvenience.”

How to Link Your Phone Number With Your NIN

Linking your phone number to your number is very easy.


For MTN users, simply dial *785# and get it done in few seconds.

Airtel – Dial *121*1#

Glo – text REG to 746

You can also visit the nearest office of your service provider (be it MTN, Glo, 9mobile, and Airtel) to register/link your NIN.

Just go along with NIN and your SIM pack. If you do not have your SIM pack, you probably should be prepared to swear an affidavit.

To be on the safer side, you can call your service provider’s customer care.

    1. You can use the NIN retrieval code on the sim you registered with NIN so you can get the number,then use the number on the other sims. I believe it should work...

      Will worry about this later biko,won't allow them stress me.

    1. Go to NIMC office in your area and register. For than more than one sim use the code up there depending on your network and link up when you have obtained your NIN

  11. A sick country led by airheads.

    What does it take to issue the plastic card three weeks after registration? A country of brainless and corrupt leaders voted in by confused populace.

    What information is available for people who have not registered for national identification number? What about Nigerians living abroad?

    1. Even people legally residing in foreign countries receive their social security almost immediately after registering for no fee whatsoever but in ur own country, after paying it will still take years to Issue.

      Biko, how difficult is it to make these things abeg. Terrible airheads really

  12. If you use the same number you used in registering for your BVN to dial the code *346# you will get your NIN number. Most are automatically linked to your BVN. After getting the numbers dial the short codes by your service providers and do the registration. After the registration a message will be sent to you tell you that it is pending confirmation from NIMC.
    If you have more than one sim card dial the same numbers you retrieved to the short code provided by the different service providers. It is that number that you would use in registering all your SIM cards.
