Nigerians to Start Paying N1000 Fee for NIN Integration and Verification

Date:

Nigerians will from April 1, 2023, be paying N1,000 for National Identity Number (NIN) integration and verification.

This development was contained in a statement signed by Head, Corporate Communications,  National Identity Management Commission (NIMC) Kayode Adegoke, on Monday, March 13, 2023.

The Commission said the new arrangement is in furtherance of the Federal Ministry of Communications and Digital Economy’s directive to streamline passport application, renewal, and issuance processes.

According to the commission, the fee is to improve the quality of service, accuracy, and speed of passport services through timely verification of NIN. With this development, a NIN Verification fee would be charged for each Nigerian passport application for this service.

According to Adegoke, every Nigerian seeking for NIN verification will be expected to pay verification fee of N1000; African countries $3.00 (organization or its equivalent in other currencies) and other countries $10.00 (or its equivalent in other countries) NIMC and NIS have agreed on a revised applicant journey that will significantly improve the speed of passport issuance/re-issuance and reduce the traffic visiting the NIS office(s).

The statement reads in part: “The National Identity Management Commission (NIMC) wishes to inform  the general public that it has devised and agreed on a framework with the Nigerian Immigration Service (NIS) to significantly improve the quality of service, accuracy, and speed of passport services through the timely verification of the National Identification Number (NIN).

“This new arrangement is in furtherance of the Federal Ministry of Communications and Digital Economy’s directive to streamline passport application, renewal, and issuance processes.

“Consequently, a NIN Verification fee would be charged for each Nigerian passport application for this service.

The NIN service, fees, and the new NIS process will go live on 1st April 2023.”
