National Identification Number Enrolment by Nobody: 4:05pm On Jun 28, 2013
The National Identification Number (NIN) is a set of numbers assigned to an individual upon successful enrolment. Enrolment consists of the recording of an individual’s demographic data and capture of the ten (10) fingerprints, head-to-shoulder facial picture and digital signature, which are all used to cross-check existing data in the National Identity Database to confirm that there is no previous entry of the same data. Once this (de-duplication) process is completed the data is then stored with a unique NIN that was assigned to it.
The NIN once issued to a person cannot be used again, (that is, it cannot be issued to another person even if the previous person is dead). It is the NIN that helps to tie all records about a person in the database and is used to check the identity verified.

Every citizen from the age of 16 years and above and legal residents are eligible to enrol for the NIN. (Arrangements are currently being made to ensure that all persons from birth can be registered and enrolment of biometrics from the age of five (5) can be achieved).The process is the same whether you choose the self-service or you require an assisted service.
