NIMC Lists Charges For Correcting NIN Name, Date Of Birth, Others On Mobile App



NIMC Clarifies New Single National ID Card

The National Identity Management Commission (NIMC) has unveiled the fees that Nigerians will have to pay to modify their data on their National Identification Number (NIN).

Recall that NIMC recently announced that corrections can be made to name, date of birth and phone numbers incorrectly registered with their NIN on a newly launched mobile application.

Before now, Nigerians who wanted to modify their data on NIN have had to go through a difficult process, besieging NIMC’s offices nationwide.

NIMC, upon launch of the app, did not announced fees for the modification of data until seven days later amid complaints from users about technical glitches on the mobile app.

NIMC set different fees for the modification of specific self-service options for the modification of data – name, age, date of birth, phone number and email address – on the NIN.

The Commission wrote on its X account, “Good news!!! You no longer have to go to a NIN enrolment center to modify your NIN record. You can modify your date of birth, name, address, email, and phone number on the NIMC SELF-SERVICE APP. What are you waiting for???”
