Old National Identity Card nin number

How To Become NIMC Agent in Nigeria


Do you want to become one of the approved NIMC Card Data Capturing Agents in Nigeria and across the World? As an agent of NIMC, your role is to capture the data and biometric of Nigerians who want to get the National Identity Card and forward it to NIMC headquarters.

Back home, there are over 200 accredited agents to enroll Nigerians, find it at: https://infomediang.com/nin-enrolment-agents-nigeria

So, what does it really require to become a National Identity Management Commission agent? We’ll tell you here the documents you need to get before submitting your application for government contracts.


Before that, let’s take a quick look into what the NIN entails and how it’s now mandated for every Nigerian to have one.

NIN which is provided in form of a “NIN slip” consists of 11 non- intelligible numbers randomly chosen and assigned to an individual after successful enrolment into the National Identity Database (NIDB).

Two persons can’t use the same NIN. Once it is assigned to an individual, it can never be reassigned, given or used by another person.

Why did NIMC commission private company for NIN enrolment process?

Recently, the Federal Government announced its determination to disconnect any mobile line that isn’t linked to their NIN.

It also said that Nigerians who reside outside of Nigeria will need NIN or National Identity card to renew or apply for passport.

Private companies who were partners within and outside Nigeria (i.e diaspora agents) were announced by the government to capture biometric.

NIMC knew it could not capture all Nigerians all alone, the reason for the award of the contract to some private companies.

Before the name of the registration NIN agents were announced, there was an announcement for bid.

Interested companies submitted their application before the final list was made public some months ago.

Requirements For NIMC Agent?

At the time of this publication, the government isn’t accepting applications. But below is the list of legal requirements you need to bid NIMC agent or for a government contract


Here is how it works:

Contracts aren’t just awarded. You must first submit an expression of interests (EOI) form which you are required to provide the following information:

  • Evidence of company registration with the Corporate Affairs Commission
  • Evidence of Registration with the Ministry of Communication and Digital Economy
  • Evidence of registration with the Bureau of Public Procurement


You will have to register as a contractor on BPP Contractor database. If you have registered as a contractor before May 2018 please login with your account details in order to have your information migrated to the upgraded database. Otherwise, choose the option to create a new account below.

  • Three years Tax clearance (TIN) from the Federal Inland Revenue Services (FIRS)
  • Financial capability (Bank reference)
  • Evidence of partnership in case of a Consortium.
  • Certificate of Compliance with Industrial Training Fund (ITF)
  • Evidence of competent personnel/organization structure
  • Certificate of Compliance with the National Pension Commission (PENCOM)
  • Evidence of similar job(s) done with letter of completion or execution as a proof

Why it’s profitable to be NIMC agent?

It’s basically to make a profit as a business. For instance, if the government claims that the registration is free (even though it isn’t), private companies charge s certain fee for their services.

Some diaspora enrolment agents, for instance, charge $50 for adults, $40 for children below 16.

The 2019 census shows that 173, 680 Nigerians are immigrants in Canada alone and more Nigerians are immigrating, according to QZ article.

What does it mean for an agent?

Using the above data, an agent that is able to capture half of that number which is 86,840 could make as much as $4,342,000 (excluding taxes)

So, it’s a good business for NIN agent in the diaspora.

For the local agents, there are no details of who bears the service charge. It’s likely applicants bears the financial burden.

We’ll keep you updated if NIMC requires more agents for the NIN biometric exercise
