It tweeted, “All persons in Nigeria who use mobile networks are required to register their SIM cards and link them with the NIN database.

 All legally resident foreigners (i.e. non-Nigerians living and working in Nigeria) are to obtain a NIN just like Nigerian citizens. They can do this by submitting valid resident/work permits at NIMC enrolment centres.

However, foreigners on tourist or visiting visa are to tender their international passports to acquire a SIM. But where such a visiting foreigner or tourist’s immigration status changes to residency or work permit, he/she will be required to obtain NIN and link the registered SIM.”

It added that the NIN does not confer citizenship on foreigners but only serves to identify a person (citizens and legal residents).
