Nigerians to pay N1,000 fee for NIN integration, verification

March 13, 2023

Nigerians are to pay a new fee of N1,000 for National Identity Number  (NIN) integration and verification.

This follows an agreement reached by National Identity Management Commission (NIMC) with the Nigerian Immigration Service (NIS) to improve the quality of service, accuracy, and speed of passport services through the timely verification of the National Identification Number (NIN).

In a statement signed by the Head, Corporate Communications, Kayode Adegoke, on Monday, 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.

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.”
