This is to inform the general public that the Federal Government have made it easy for every citizen of the country to apply For national ID Where Ever he/she is. For this option of the enrollment process, the applicant visits the official website of NIMC (www.nimc.gov.ng) and pre-enrols online using the Pre-enrolment Portal (https://penrol.nimc.gov.ng/), filling in his/her data in block letters, then prints out a summary sheet that has a 2D Barcode. It is important to note that the Online Pre-Enrollment is an initial step in the enrollment process. The enrollment is only completed after the applicant gets his or her biometric data (fingerprints, headshot photograph and signature) captured and processed by an Enrollment Officer at any NIMC Enrollment Centre.
Downloading and Using the Enrollment Form
Rather than filling in the online pre-enrollment form and printing out a summary sheet with the 2D barcode, an applicant can also download the Enrollment Form to print out and fill.
To download your enrollment form online go to www.nimc.gov.ng.
Fill all forms in block letters and proceed to the nearest enrollment Centre for biometrics capturing in order to obtain the National Identification Number (NIN).
*Note: you can also pick up an enrollment form at NIMC’S ERC.
