Your NIN is almost like how your Bank BVN number works, you can link multiple sims to your NIN just as one BVN can be used on several banks. The national identification number replaces your Nation ID Card, i.e the old plastic one, so your new National ID has a NIN number which is all that matters, if you are yet to get yours, you can simply apply for National Identification Number here.


How To Check your NIN (If Forgotten) 2021


If you already have the new Nigeria National ID Card (Paper Type) and you didn't remember where you kept it, but you used it to register your NIN with your SIM card, then the below code will help you display it. 

  1. Dial *346# on your phone Keypad.
  2. Type "1" to view your NIN.
  3. It will tell you that your request is being processed.
  4. It will then be sent to you as SMS and N20 will be deducted.
