NIGERIA: National Identification Number to be renewed before 2018

In order to stay eligible for a residence permit, foreign nationals working in Nigeria must renew their National Identification Number (NIN) before the end of this year. The new policy applies to foreign employees with long-term residence and work permits in Nigeria and is implemented in order to create a more centralised database. The following documents are required for the registration which can either be carried out by the company (depending on the number of employees) or in person: 

  • Copy of Resident Permit (Green card); or receipt and temporary Green card; and 
  • Copy of passport  

How does this affect the client? 

Employees living and working in Nigeria must be aware of the policy change as it may affect their residence status.
