Roshan Digital Account system is a major initiative by State Bank of Pakistan together with commercial banks operating in Pakistan.
For the first time in country’s history, overseas Pakistanis will be able to remotely open an account through an entirely digital and online process without any need to visit a bank branch, embassy or consulate.
The customer can choose either a foreign currency or rupee dominated account, or both. Funds in these accounts will be fully repatriable, without the need for any regulatory approval.
