How to Check if Your National ID Card Is Ready for Pick Up

It is possible that your national identity card is ready, but you do not know it. According to the National Identity Management Commission (NIMC), if you registered for the national ID card a long time ago, then you can check if it is ready online. There is an online platform where you can check the status of your identity card using the following simple steps:

1. Visit NIMC center:
2. Then click the proceed button
3. Now, fill in your first name, last name and your Naitional Identification Number and hit the ‘check now button’.
I just checked mine now.

Even banks that have advance security features on their atm card is done and issued within 24hrs, it's only government things that are different. I sometimes ask the difference between the national ID and ATM card..?

1. Visit their website
2. Then click the proceed button
3. Now, fill in your first name, last name and your National Identification Number and click the ‘check now button’.

If you are wondering where to get National Identification Number (NIN). It's actually on your temporary card they issued to you after registration.

See the scanned copy of my own Temporary National ID Card attached to the comment and find the NIN (Though, I blocked it because it's a sensitive info). Make sure you still have the temporary card. Check out the Red arrow I placed and trace the last 6 digits of the NIN number on your own card. That's all

If it is available or not, the system will tell you.
