Dear State Coordinators, following the announcement yesterday of 'NO NIN NO INTERNATIONAL PASSPORT AS FROM 2018' announced by Nigeria immigration service, there's been the usual misconceptions between the NIN and the ID Card. We have crafted the message below to be shared widely on all WhatsApp platforms, please copy and share to your staff and other groups. See message below

You may have seen or heard the news that BEGINNING FROM 2018 THE NIGERIA IMMIGRATION SERVICE WILL NOT RENEW OR ISSUE NEW INTERNATIONAL PASSPORTS TO PERSONS WITHOUT THE NATIONAL IDENTIFICATION NUMBER (NIN) ISSUED BY NIMC.

What this means is that all applicants for the Nigerian International Passport starting from January 1 next year shall be required to enter their 11 digits National Identification Number (NIN) on their application forms before their applications can be processed.

Please note that the announcement does not say NATIONAL e-ID CARD but NATIONAL IDENTIFICATION NUMBER. They are two different tokens issued by NIMC. The NIN is issued to you on a slip once you register successfully at a NIMC center, it is your MAIN identity in the National Identity Database and will gradually replace other means of identity in Nigeria, this is where we are heading to.

The Immigration Service has done well by linking up with NIMC's NIN Verification platform to identify all citizens and foreigners applying for the passport. It will help Nigeria in security and other sensitive areas. Every other data collection agency in Nigeria is expected to follow soon.

The electronic ID Card is also important for several other services and will be issued to everyone who has a NIN immediately NIMC gets the required resources. We regret the slow pace of card issuance. We are already issuing them.

Please disregard all rumors and share this announcement widely.

Thank you.
