Bank Better, Live Better

fica documents info

As an accountable institution, we must comply with Financial Intelligence Centre Act (FICA) requirements. This means that for identification and verification purposes, clients must provide us with certain personal information and documents to open an account.


1. Original identification document

2. No proof of residential address needed

As part of Capitec’s new approach to FICA requirements, you no longer have to provide a proof of address when you open a Capitec account or apply for credit.

Note: You may be asked to provide supporting documents in order to complete the process

Download our ​​full FICA flyer​​ for the most current requirements for a minor*, or contact our Client Care Centre on 0860 10 20 43 for more information.
