NIMC set to launch NIN registration app for Nigerians in Diaspora

The NIMC has launched plans for a self-service application which will allow Nigerians in the diaspora to enrol for the NIN

The National Identity Management Commission (NIMC) has unveiled plans to introduce a user-friendly self-service application, enabling Nigerians in the Diaspora to enrol seamlessly for their National Identity Number (NIN).

The new application plan was disclosed during a strategic meeting at the office of Hon. Abike Dabiri-Erewa, Chairman/CEO of the Nigerians in Diaspora Commission (NIDCOM) when Engr. Abisoye Coker-Odusote, Director-General/CEO of NIMC, paid a courtesy visit and provided insights into the upcoming self-service application.

Engr. Coker-Odusote said the initiative aligns with her commitment to enhancing service delivery and establishing a hassle-free system for Nigerians outside the country.

Scheduled to launch in February, the application is designed to offer a contactless and smooth experience for Nigerians abroad seeking to acquire their NINs.

As part of the process, a dedicated Diaspora Focal Point Desk will be established at the NIMC Office, ensuring prompt issue resolution within 24 hours. This customer-centric approach aims to efficiently support Nigerians abroad, aligning with the agency’s dedication to quality service delivery.

Speaking on the latest milestone marks a significant milestone in leveraging technology to enhance the accessibility of critical identity services for Nigerians in the Diaspora.
