List of IMTOs in Nigeria

Last updated on February 10th, 2024 at 02:43 pm


Do you have family and friends in Nigeria you would like to send money to? You need not worry because the Central Bank of Nigeria (CBN) has a list of certified IMTOs that can successfully help you deliver funds to your loved ones back home.

What are IMTOs?

IMTOs are International Money Transfer Operators that are licenced by the CBN to handle cross-border funds from foreign countries to Nigeria. They are safe and secure because they’ve passed the verification of Nigeria’s apex bank.

However, they can only process payment in Naira even when you’re paid in USD or other foreign currencies, according to new CBN guidelines


Offshore payment via unregistered payment services

A few days ago, banks in Nigeria updated their customers about the list of registered IMTOs in Nigeria through which they can get money delivered to them by their foreign family members.

Specifically, Access Bank Plc stated that offshore funds payments processed via unregistered payment services will not be received or processed by the bank.
