Step 1

All the documents must be originally certified copies. An independent commissioner of oaths must do the certification.

Step 2

You’ll need to produce your ID book (the green, bar-coded identity document). For certification, your ID book must have a clear picture of you, which is a reasonable likeness. The submission of unclear or uncertified documents will result in a delay in processing an account-opening request.

Step 3

Documentation must be sent to us via mail to Phuthuma Nathi, c/o Singular Systems, PO Box 785261, Sandton, 2146; or hand delivered/couriered to us at Phuthuma Nathi, c/o Singular Systems, 71 Corlett Drive, Birnam, 2196
