4. Check bvn on gtb using the bank verification code

It is quite unfortunate that even in 2021 most people doesn’t know about the bank verification code which covers all banks and all networks in Nigeria.

Yes, there’s a bank verification number ussd code or you can as well call it bvn code, and it is applied to all banks in Nigeria and our prepaid networks.

What is the bvn code?

The bvn code is *565*0#

With the above ussd code, you can check bvn on any bank account or mobile phone number. However, the phone number must be linked to your bank verification number. You can’t use any phone number to check your bvn using the *565*0#, else it won’t work.

How to check bvn on gtb using the bvn code?

On your mobile phone, dial *565*0# and you’re required to pay N20 from your airtime. So you must have at least N20 on your airtime balance for it to work.

As you dial the *565*0# on your phone, N20 will be deducted from your airtime and it will display your bank verification number on your screen.


  • No internet is required for this
  • Applicable to banks and networks


  • Should have been free since it is from the government, but it isn’t and N20 is very high as it should have been N10 maximum

This is how to check bvn on gtb using the bvn code, and which attracts a fee of N20 per anytime you dialed the ussd code.

5. Going to the bank

There’s no way I will writing on how to check bvn on gtb without mentioning going to the bank.

Yes, this is the last resort.

Check bvn by going to the bank.

Most people don’t like it because it is stressful and time consuming, but if you don’t fancy the four methods above, then this is the last option for you to check bvn on gtb.

What you need to do is to go to any Guaranty trust bank, move straight to the customer service section and speak with them. Request that you want to retrieve your bank verification number as you’re not with it.

They will request your ID and your bank account number from you.

Make sure to go to the bank with your bank account number and means of identification, else the bank won’t look at your face.

Give them your account number and the bank will run a check on your account and in turn retrieving your bank verification number for you. I recommend you keep the paper in a safe place for future use.
