Certificates of Capital Importation (CCI) are issued by Nigerian banks as evidence of direct foreign capital investment into Nigeria. Such capital inflows may relate to debt or equity, and can be in the form of cash or goods. Foreign investors can use the CCI as a guarantee for unconditional repatriation of capital and profits, as well as any interest and/or dividend attributable to their investments.

The transition from hardcopy CCIs to eCCIs is part of the central bank’s efforts to promote transparency and process efficiency, and digitise its database of CCIs issued to investors.
