Bank Verification Number or BVN shouldn’t be strange to your hearing if you live in Nigeria or perhaps you own an account with any of the Nigerian bank. A bio-metric exercise mandated by the Central Bank of Nigeria to ensures all bank account(s) holder get registered and partake in the exercise which captures their real data like names, photo identity, fingerprint and signature.
Are you a GTBank customer and have done the BVN in other bank(s)? If you answer yes, you don’t have to do it again even though you are required to go to any GTB branch to link your existing BVN done in other bank(s) to your GTBank account. This of course is tedious as many customers will be queued up in the bank to do same. There is goodness to those who uses online / internet banking as you can login and complete the process within seconds.
Irrespective of the number of accounts you have with any bank, you’re required to do the BVN registration exercise only once, double registration is a criminal offence.
