NIMC verification portal

The NIMC verification portal is for those who want to verify their identity. The NIMC Verification Service manages the verification process. There are different types of verification services. In this post, we’ll focus on a few of them and explain how to verify your NIN online.

The Web Version

  2. A binding contract is executed between NIMC and the corporate body.
  3. Fill out NIMC Verification Service forms.
  4. Designate individuals as administrators or users.
The Desktop Version

The Desktop Version of NIMC verification is different from the Web version in the following ways:

  1. It uses NIMC-specific identification methods like Finger Print Scanners and other biometric devices.
  2. Verification is possible even without the NIN.

To use this version, the corporate body needs to follow these steps:

  1. Submit a request to NIMC through a formal letter.
  2. Execute a binding contract with NIMC, non-compliance may result in penalties.
  3. Fill out NIMC verification forms.
  4. Choose administrators and users.

Both options rely on a stable network and the availability of NIMC core verification backend. The verification service is accessible 24/7 throughout the week.
