The National Identity Management Commission (NIMC) has concluded plans to extend National Identification Number (NIN) Enrolment to Nigerians in Diaspora who live in Austria and Germany.
Aliyu A. Aziz NIMC Director General/CEO who disclosed this in Abuja said the exercise will involve the demographic and biometric data capture of Nigerians residing in Austria and Germany and will be done in collaboration with Biosec Solution Limited, one of the Partners licensed by NIMC to carry out enrolment across the globe.
Aziz noted that the extension was to ensure that Nigerians living in Diaspora are not disenfranchised from the process, as it is in line with NIMC’s mandate to populate the National Identity Database (NIDB) and issue the NIN to all Nigerians and Legal Residents.
He reiterated that the NIN is a mandatory requirement for many services like the acquisition and renewal of the International Passport, Bank account opening in Nigeria, Tax filing in Nigeria, and Business registration with the Corporate Affairs Commission amongst others.
The flag off of the new Centres holds Wednesday 21st August, 2019 in Austria, Vienna at the Embassy/Permanent Mission of the Federal Republic of Nigeria, and Friday, 23rd August, 2019 in Germany, Berlin at the Nigeria Embassy.
The NIMC licensed partners include: Biosec Solutions Limited; Slogani Consults Limited; CHAMS Consortium Limited; Defcon Systems Limited/ OIS Services; National eAuthentication Limited/ OIS Services; Thebez Global Resources/ Cox & Kings; Dantata Universal Services/VFS Global; Venn Technology Limited; Kevonne Consults Limited/Iris ID Systems INC.; UGS Technologies Limited/ OrangeHook African Continental/ Carvus; File Solution Limited/ EYE-ID LLC and IRIS Smart Technologies Limited.
