How To Check, Validate, Update and Link Your BVN To Your Bank Account

There’s a new, faster and better way to link your bank account with your BVN without direct visit to banking hall.

The Bank Verification Number commonly called BVN is a biometric identification system implemented by the Central Bank of Nigeria to curb or reduce illegal banking transactions in Nigeria. It is a modern security measure in line with the Central Bank of Nigeria Act 1958 to reduce fraud in the banking system.

So it's mandatory that you have a BVN account if you want to open a bank account or perform transactions in Nigeria. You are required to have a unique BVN Number which must be linked to all your bank accounts to avoid restrictions or similar scenerios.

However, some Nigerians are not yet aware that linking, validating and updating BVN can be simply done at the comfort of their room, office or working place. Follow below steps to achieve this without wasting time.
  1. To link your BVN to your bank account simply dial *565*2# from your MTN line
  2. To validate your BVN at anytime, just dial *565*1#
  3. To check your BVN at anytime, dial *565*0#.
NOTE: service fee of N20 will be deducted from your SIM once you perform any of the tasks above. Also note that these post is exclusively for MTN customers. For Glo, Airtel, 9Mobile and all other network, the procedure will be published later on this blog.
