How To Print Premium NIN Slip (Plastic ID Card & Paper)

The Improved NIN Slip is a digital token made for people in Nigeria who have a National Identification Number (NIN). It’s designed to be more user-friendly and easy to get. The Improved NIN Slip looks like a small card, similar to a credit card, and it must have an Aztec Barcode to be valid.

This new version is different from the old one. The old one was larger and not easy to carry around. It also had more requirements for verification. But both the old and new slips can still be used as ID in Nigeria.
