This will equally be scanned and uploaded to the right section of the form.

The National Identification Number (NIN) is a set of numbers assigned to an individual upon successful enrolment for the national ID cards.

Note that most applicants have not already registered for the National ID card. In this case, you’re advised to get it registered before you apply.

If your NIN copy is not ready, you can use any figure in the NIN box in order to be able to complete and submit your form.

Then, go for the screening with evidence of your registration for the national ID card.
