The Unstructured Supplementary Service Data (USSD) code for the eNaira is *997#, according to the Central Bank of Nigeria (CBN). The USSD code was announced 10 months after the unveiling of the eNiara.

CBN said the *997# eNaira USSD code would enhance diaspora remittances, enable direct welfare disbursement to citizens, as well as improve the availability of central bank money, all of which are to improve financial inclusion.
