Nigerians Living Abroad Have To Travel Back Home To Get BVN In Banks?? by switch47(m): 3:04pm On Feb 19, 2015
How would Bank customers Living outside Nigeria Enrol and get the Bank Verification number as mandated by the CETRAL BANK OF NIGERIA without which no one can transact business as a customer in any BANK in Nigeria from 25th of June 2015?
Answer: Bank customers living outside Nigeria would have to come back to the country to
enroll.


i think this is wrong, why should one have to travel all the way from United Kingdom, United state and other countries just to come and obtain BVN in Nigeria, is there no way the CBN can make it possible for Nigerians abroad to do this without having to travel all the way down bearing in mind that there is a short period of time before the DEADLINE??

As you may already be aware, the Central Bank of Nigeria (CBN) in conjunction with the Bankers Committee has launched the Biometric Identification Project to provide a single biometric database for all banks’ customers nationwide. Part of the requirements within this initiative is that customers enroll with their banks to get their unique Bank Verification Numbers (BVN), without which customers will not be able to transact in any bank after the deadline JUNE 25 2015.

I discussed this issue yesterday with a friend who currently resides in the UK. He wants to open a domiciliary account in Nigeria.

What would it take CBN to set up BVN centers at all foreign embassies and missions? angry

CBN and the banks will find away around it.

Most of these banks have foreign business offices anyway. These may be employed for data capturing.

Even besides that, they also have foreign bankers too ie Union bank foreign banker in the States is Citi Bank; so Citi may capture for union and send it over.

All these are speculations, though with a high degree of probability.

emmmm
Maybe / maybe not grin

enroll.
Are you sure, this mandate is from the CBN?
I don't think the CBN has given any final say on this issue.

There would definitely be a provision for the abroad based customers. Time is flying though - deadline approaching.
