It should be noted that with the help of the Digital Roshan Pakistan Accounts Program, Pakistanis living abroad can easily invest in the country.
The program was inaugurated by the Prime Minister on September 10. After the launch of the program, Pakistanis living abroad have the facility to open their accounts in 8 major banks of Pakistan while living in any country overseas.
Opening the account will require only a basic set of information and documents. Banks have been asked to complete all necessary customer due diligence within 48 hours. The Roshan Digital Account will integrate the Pakistani diaspora fully into the Pakistani banking and digital payments system.
This account provides innovative banking solutions for millions of Non-Resident Pakistanis (NRPs) seeking to undertake banking, payment, and investment activities in Pakistan.
It will provide access to all conventional account services, including funds transfer, bill payments for their families, e-commerce, and other payments in Pakistan.
