Open an account in minutes via BIDC Bank’s eKYC technology


With breakthrough technology, BIDC allows customers to register accounts online anytime, anywhere instead of having to visit a branch.

Electronic know-your-customer – eKYC – technology is key to helping banks improve the user experience while contributing to the simplifying of procedures.


And in the context of the Covid-19 epidemic, eKYC maximizes value when gradually replacing physical interactions, eliminating distance, and contributing to protecting customer health.

The Bank for Investment and Development of Cambodia Plc (BIDC Bank) has recently applied cutting-edge technology to the identification process, allowing customers to open new accounts quickly and safely.

Customers wanting to open a bank account previously had to go to a branch to register and verify the information. Now all that is necessary is for a customer to download the BIDC Mobile Banking Cambodia app, enter their phone number, take a photo of their original ID and photograph their face.

The system will then check the information is valid and open an account in minutes.

With such ease and convenience, opening a BIDC account online through eKYC is the optimal choice for customers too busy to visit a branch.


The BIDC eKYC solution integrates modern technology in artificial intelligence (AI) and biometrics authentication – such as OCR (optical character recognition), FAC (facial authentication, face liveness detection) – to authenticate customer information easily and securely. In addition, it promotes a secure and hassle-free experience when opening an online account.
