Go to the https://myportal.nimc.go.ng online portal.
If you have not already, download and install the NIMC MWS Mobile ID app on your mobile device. Learn more at https://nimc.gov.ng/mobile-digital-id/
Access NIMC’s MWS Mobile ID app on your mobile device. Make sure your device is connected to the Internet.
On the app’s home screen tap on the “I Need A Pin” button.
Take note of the “UserID” and “One Time PIN (OTP)” now displayed on the app’s “Get OTP” section.
Use the UserID and OTP to log into to the myportal.nimc.gov.ng portal.
Go to the the “Print Improved NIN Slip” section on the portal’s homepage. Make the relevant payment then download the front and rear parts of your Slip as a PDF document.
You can now print out the PDF document, cut it to the right size, fold it and laminate your Improved NIN Slip, if you like.
