Biometric

Biometric Registration Web Banner3

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 (date soon to be announced by CBN)

In our quest to continue to put You First for convenient and secure banking, we at FirstBank are keen to ensure that all our valued customers are aware and understand the benefits of this initiative

Why you should get your Bank Verification Number (BVN)

  • Security – Higher level of security, protects your account from unauthorized access
  • Speed – Fast-track services in FirstBank branches when you transact with your biometrics
  • Ease – Easy and acceptable means of identification across all Banks in Nigeria, BVN

What are the requirements?

Where do you need to go?
