Kuda Bank Account Tiers

At Kuda, bank accounts are categorized into three distinct tiers, each with its own set of rules and limitations designed to balance security, access, and regulatory compliance.

Tier 0 (T0)

Tier 0 is the most basic level of account, intended for users who have not yet confirmed their Bank Verification Number (BVN) and do not have a valid form of identification attached to their account. Accepted forms of ID include a driver's license, voter’s card, international passport, national ID card, or NIN slip. Accounts in this tier are significantly restricted, with stringent limits on transaction amounts and the total balance that can be maintained. These limitations ensure security but also mean that users at this level have access to only the most essential banking services and features.

Tier 1 (T1)

Tier 1 accounts are for users who have a confirmed BVN but have not yet attached a valid ID to their account. While these accounts offer more privileges than Tier 0, they still come with certain restrictions. Users in this tier enjoy higher transaction limits and fewer restrictions on account features compared to Tier 0. This tier allows for more comprehensive access to Kuda's banking services, enabling users to perform a wider range of transactions and manage their finances more effectively, though some limitations on maximum balances and transaction volumes remain.

Tier 3 (T3)

Tier 3 represents the highest level of account at Kuda, reserved for users who have both a confirmed BVN and a valid form of identification attached to their account. This tier offers the fullest range of Kuda’s banking services and features. Users with Tier 3 accounts benefit from the highest transaction limits and can maintain larger account balances than those in lower tiers. They have unrestricted access to all of Kuda's financial products and services, providing maximum flexibility and convenience. This tier is designed to offer a comprehensive banking experience, ensuring that users can fully leverage Kuda's offerings.
