How To Collect Your National e-ID Card

If your card is ready, NIMC will send you a message notifying you to come forward to collect the Card as directed in the SMS. No one can collect your National e-ID Card on your behalf. To qualify for a National e-ID Card, you must first be enrolled and have a National Identification Number (NIN).

Step 1

You must have received an SMS from NIMC

Step 2 (Collection Centre)

Go to the NIMC Collection Centre indicated in the SMS sent to you. Take your NIN/Transaction slip along. Mention the Batch ID on the SMS.

Step 3 (Envelope Given/Received)

Receive your National e-ID Card in a sealed envelope. Open the envelope, take out the Card, sign on the space provided at the back. after reading, please keep all the inserts in the envelope safely.

Step 4 (Biometric Verification)

Do a Biometric Verification to confirm that it is your Card. This also confirms that the Card has been properly printed.

Step 5 (PIN Number Selection)

After biometric verification, you will be required to enter a FOUR (4) DIGIT NUMBER chosen by you to activate your National e-ID Card.

Step 6 (Fund Loading)

There is provision for fund loading at the NIMC Collection Centre. You can also do actual Cash Loading at any branch of ACCESS BANK nationwide.
