     The National Identification Number (NIN)

    The National Identification Number (NIN) is a set of numbers assigned to an individual 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, which are all 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 Check Your NIN Number Using USSD Code

     To check, simply follow the steps below:

    • Pickup your phone and dial *346# 
    • Choose the “NIN Retrieval” option, by typing in ‘1’ to check your NIN number if you dialed this code from the phone number you used when registering for your NIN.
    • After that Select “NIN Search” by typing in ‘2’, to check your NIN by inputting some of your registration details if you’ve lost your phone number or using another phone.
    • Congratulations, you are now able to check your NIN for your mobile device.

    Ensure you have at least N20 Airtime on your phone because you’ll be charged a one time fee of N20 once you dial the USSD code above.

    You must dial from the sim associated with a previous registration of either voter’s card, driver’s license, bvn or any other registration that got your thumbprint and photo.
