Nigerians will pay a new fee of N1,000 for National Identity Number  (NIN) integration and verification.

He said every Nigerian seeking NIN  verification would pay verification fee of N1000; African countries, $3.00 (organization or its equivalent in other currencies) and other countries $10.00 (or its equivalent in other countries) NIMC and NIS have agreed on a revised applicant journey that will significantly improve the speed of passport issuance/re-issuance and  reduce the traffic visiting the NIS office(s).
