According to reports from the National Identification Management Commission (NIMC), Nigerians have been told to retrieve their national identification number (NIN) from their mobile phones by using the dialing code *346#.
The Nigerian Communications Commission ( NCC) has given a two week deadline for subscribers to provide a valid NIN to update their SIM registration records.
Nigerian SIM card users who fail to update their NIN registration after the deadline, will have their SIM blocked from their network provider(s).
All subscribers who have not done their NIN registration should visit: https://penrol.nimc.gov.ng/login form.tpl.html.php to fill the NIMC Pre-Enrolment online form. All mandatory fields must be filled with the correct information provided. After filling the form, download and print your Pre-Enrolment Slip.
Walk into the nearest NIMC registration centre with any valid and original documents of identification (Birth certificate, driver’s license, etc.) These documents will be used for verification of all details pertaining to your application and the capture of your biometrics.
