Using NIYO IDFC FIRST savings account after getting NRI status

Hey all,

If I apply for the NIYO IDFC FIRST savings account, can I continue using it if I am considered an NRI, or will I have to close it? Students gain NRI status on landing in the other country, hence my question.

Also, does this apply to the NIYO Global DCB Card?


Hey Rayhaan! Niyo IDFC FIRST bank account acts like a normal savings account, however, you can use the card internationally with zero forex mark up charges. Niyo DCB Global card offers you zero forex mark up, live currency exchange rates etc.

You can either choose one or both.
