1. I Send NIN to 55019 But I Got No Reply

This particular error is very common and the solution is simple, the reason for getting no reply may be a problem with the SIM or network provider, SMS service center number mixup.

You can try to remove your SIM from the phone and insert it into another phone and Follow the process in this article to receive your profile code.

2. Insufficient Balance Error

To get your JAMB profile code and before sending NIN to 55019, you must make sure you have at least #50 on your line (Main credit).

3. Phone Number Used Already by Another Candidate Error

This is simple, just make sure you’re the owner of the number and no one has used it for JAMB registration before.

4. Invalid Character Found Errors

To get the profile code, if your NIN is “32365678513″, send an SMS in the format NIN 32365678513 to 55019, avoid adding special characters like (“), (.), colon (:) Dash (-), etc.

5. Record Not Found for the NIN Error

I’ve received a lot of messages from applicants concerning this error, I hope the solution Edustuff provides will be helpful.

To solve this issue, check if the number (NIN) you send was correct. If anything is omitted, correct it. If you put space anywhere after the NIN, remove it, then retry.

If they get the same error again after doing that, wait for few days and retry. If you keep getting same error, kindly visit the nearest NIMC center to make a complaint.

6. Date of Birth Invalid Error

If you get this error, this shows that something is wrong with the date of birth submitted for the National ID card. More likely, you’re not up to 16 years.

To solve this issue, visit the nearest NIMC enrollment center to change your date of birth to be suitable for the exam and admission. This may cost you around #15,000.

7. Surname/First Name Missing in Your NIN Details

This is a NIN-based issue. JAMB system is unable to see a correct arrangement of names or the NAME on the NIN is invalid.

To resolve this issue, kindly wait for a few days and retry. NIMC and JAMB should be updating things as time goes on to allow candidates with issues to get through.

If you get the error again, kindly visit the nearest NIMC enrollment center or office and make a complaint.

8. Your NIN Passport is not Valid

The system could not see your passport clearly or no passport available in the first place.

Visit the next NIMC enrollment center to make corrections.

9. No record found for NIN contact NIMC

Most applicants will get this error after sending NIN to 55019, candidates’ information was not found while the system was trying to fetch your details. This is because the NIN registration was recent and a few things needed to be done (by NIMC) before being fully updated, wait for few days and retry, visit the NIMC enrollment center to make a complaint if you keep getting the same error.
