CBN extends BVN registration for Nigerians in Diaspora

 The Central Bank of Nigeria, CBN , has extended the Bank Verification Number , BVN, registration exercise for Nigerian Banks’ Customers in the Diaspora to June 30, 2016.

This directives was given barely four days after the deadline for Nigerian banks’ customers abroad to enrol for the Bank Verification Number (BVN) expired, the Central Bank of Nigeria (CBN), yesterday further extended
the deadline for the diaspora till June 30, 2016.

 According to a statement by the CBN Director of Banking Supervision, ’Dipo Fatokun, the deadline for registration for BVN and linkage of accounts had been extended from January 31, 2016 to June 30, 2016.
CBN explained that it had “observed through a recent survey, the low percentage of registration of Nigerian banks’ customers in diaspora which may be attributed to lack of accessibility of registration centres and unavailability of registration centres in some cities where Nigerian population is high.”

Consequently, it listed 30 centres where Nigerians in diaspora can register for BVN, adding that plans are on to deploy more centres in locations with high Nigerian population. It therefore enjoined Nigerian banks’ customers who are yet to comply to do so before the end of the new deadline.

In the United States of America, centres have been sited in Washington DC, Atlanta, Houston, Los Angeles, New York and San Fransisco. In the United Kingdom, two centres were sited in London as well as Leicester and Manchester.

There is a centre in Dubai of the United Arab Emirates, as well as Johannesburg and Cape Town in South Africa. There is another centre in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia and three in China- Beijing, Shanghai and Guangzhou.
