  1. Pls mr admin, I got this sms from my bank as well. But im kinda lost, coz I have all d necessary info except the BVN code. Pls whats that?

    1. Hello Yanju,
      I don’t understand your question. Where is the SMS your bank sent to you. If you don’t have BVN code, use the code on article above to link your BVN to bank account

    2. I think Yanju is confused because of the ‘code’ after BVN. So I’ll rephrase as follows: Once you have your BVN, Send an SMS to 08076664444, using BVN#youraccountnumber#yourBankVerificationNumber

      I hope this helps.

        1. Hello Oree,
          Have you register for BVN with any bank in Nigeria before? If you have, then you can easily link BVN to your Firstbank account even as you are in abroad using the code in the article above.

  2. Which one is BVN code?…is BVN number different from BVN code?..if yes wat then is the difference?..because we are told..BVN+AccNumber+BVN code.

    1. Hello Femi,
      your bank verification code (BVN code) is the same as your BVN (BVN number). There is no difference.

      In the firstbank BVN linking SMS code above (BVN#youraccountnumber#BVN code), what you are expected to do is first, type; BVN follow by your account nunmber and then your BVN NUMBER OR CODE as you may wish to call it.

      Example; BVN#3010415632#23300045345 and then send to 08076664444

  3. Please am out of the country am in Malaysia and i need to link by Bvn Number to my account how do i do that?

    1. Hello Yetunde,
      Have you register for BVN with any bank before? If you have, then you can easily link you BVN to your bank account even as you are in Malaysia using the code in the article above ( this is for firstbank customers).

  4. Pls we take my mum death certificate to the bank to collect the money in her account almost 2yrs now and notin has been doing, Admin is their any way we can use the BVN to withdraw from her account?

    1. Hello Midey,
      you can’t use BVN to withdraw from your late mum’s bank account. Your Mum’s bank (if it is firstbank) should be in a right position to direct you on the procedure involved in claiming the money in her account. Bank has no right to withheld your mum’s money.

  5. Admin

    1. Hello ogede oladimeji babatunde,

      There is No need applying for another BVN. You can link that initial BVN (I mean the one registered with Firstbank) to your GTbank account.
