Since the CBN rolled out single Biometric Identification System in 2014, Biometric Verification Number (BVN) has become a very important code in our day-to-day banking. Ensure you have your BVN at your fingertips by finding out how to check your BVN on Airtel, MTN, Glo and 9Mobile.
BVN now plays a leading role as it is now required to: Open bank accounts, withdraw cash, register for Federal schemes, get a government statutory ID, amongst other things. Your BVN is unique to you alone. You can use same number for all your transactions if required.
*IMPORTANT NOTICE: Any line/phone number used in checking BVN must also be the same you used when enrolling for the BVN in first place.
Simple steps on how to check your BVN on Airtel, MTN, Glo and 9Mobile with your phone
- Make sure your line is charged with at least N20
- Simply dial *565*0# on the phone. All networks actually use same code.
- This should load for a moment, once this is done BVN should pop up on your phone.
- A notification of N20 debit from your line should follow.
That is all.
