Bank Verification Number (BVN) is a unique identifier implemented by the Federal Government of Nigeria to streamline bank accounts in the country. With lots of numbers and identification tags to remember, it is easy to forget your BVN. But banks have setup a system such that you can dial a USSD to retrieve your BVN. This article provides you with the BVN code for all banks in Nigeria.
Because not everyone in Nigeria has access to the Internet, the system works without an Internet connection. You do not even need a smartphone. Any kind of mobile phone will do, including the basic feature phones with an alphanumeric keyboard. As long as you have network coverage, you can dial the USSD code for your bank to retrieve your BVN whenever you need it.
BVN code for all banks: USSD code to dial
To check your BVN on your mobile phone on any bank in Nigeria, dial *565*0#. This works for any bank – Guaranty Trust Bank, Access Bank, Stanbic IBTC, First bank, Ecobank, Zenith Bank, Union Bank.
What kind of phones does this code work on? All types – feature phones and smartphones by all mobile phone brands: Samsung, Nokia, TECNO, Infinix, itel, Cubot, etc. Feel free to use this BVN code regardless of what phone you have.
