#This second means of payment will not be successful for those not registered on the MDCN website or not completed their profile on the website.
Make use of good internet service and exercise patience when accessing the website preferably, at night. Don’t wait till 31st December!
NB: Please remember that payment after 31st of December will attract a 100% increase and just paying the money without completing the process is not a guarantee that you have renewed your practicing licence.
Every practitioner is expected to pay their Practising Fees on or before 31st December 2022.
This payment is free on remita platform. There is no Building Levy requirement on remita platform. Please generate remita for the amount due (ie 20k for those up to 10 year standing, and 10k for those below 10 years standing) and pay at once at any Bank.
It is only those that go to the MDCN portal to pay that see the Building Levy requirement. The case of Building Levy is still in the Federal High Court of Nigeria and the issue of validation and insurance have now been added to the battle. Plaintiff is now asking the Court to declare that portal validation of Practicing Fees is illegal. The use of MDCN portal for Cornerstone Insurance Policy sales to doctors is now included in the modified suit.
All the medical doctors are hereby encouraged to generate remita at no cost and pay their Practising Fees in any bank on or before 31st December 2021. The issue of going to MDCN portal to upload the RRR number (called validation) shall be sorted out after the judgment of the Federal High Court.
Documents you will need to upload while renewing your MDCN licence.

2. Birth certificate (affidavit of age declaration from a competent court is fully accepted). Instead of affidavit, you can go and register your birth at the National Population Commission (go with your affidavit)
