In another move towards paperless processes, FNB announced that you can now open an account by taking a selfie.
Switching to FNB is now easier and faster than ever thanks to innovative technology that allows us to fast track your application process by verifying your identity with the Department of Home Affairs.*
Download the FNB Banking App today and smile, snap and switch.
*You must have a valid RSA ID and be registered at the Department of Home Affairs— FNB
The new selfie technology by FNB complies with FICA (Financial Intelligence Centre) and the South African Reserve Bank verification requirements.
As a result, banks may not require Fica documents in order to open an account - as per the past.
