After your NIN has been submitted, MTN will begin the process of verification with the NIMC. If your NIN is verified, your NIN will link it to your MTN SIM registration, and you may not need to do anything further. If it is not possible to verify the NIN you have submitted, then you may need to visit an enrolment centre, in person.
