The enrolment or registration for the Nin involves recording the individual’s demographic data, fingerprint capturing (10 fingerprints are needed), head-to-shoulder facial picture as well as a digital signature. All these details are then used to cross-check the database to ensure that there’s no other individual with those data before the NIN is generated and given to the individual—this check can last anywhere between 1 to 5 days.

Hence, if you recently registered and you are yet to receive yours, give it a 5-day waiting period and afterwards, your NIN will be ready for printing and collection.
