You will recall that as part of its efforts towards ensuring full implementation of the BVN Project, the Central Bank of Nigeria issued a circular extending the deadline for the registration and linkage of BVN to accounts of Nigerian Banks’ Customers in diaspora to January 31, 2016.
The CBN has observed, through a recent survey, the low percentage of registration of Nigeria Banks’ Customers in diaspora, which may be attributed to lack of accessibility to registration centres and unavailability of registration centres in some cities where Nigerian population is high.
Consequently, all the DMBs hereby requested to note that BVN enrolment for Nigerian Banks’ Customers in Diaspora is hereby extended to 30th June, 2016. This is to enable such customers complete the enrolment and link the BVN to their bank accounts.
Please note that plans are on to deploy more registration centres for locations with high Nigerian population. Nigerian Banks’ Customers in diaspora are enjoined to seize the opportunity of this extension to register and link their BVN to their bank accounts.
Please be guided and ensure strict compliance.
