How to open GTBank account online?
Step #1. Visit GTBank account opening portal using https://ao.gtbank.com/aowe/start
Note: You can do that using either your mobile phone or your computer. But the view is much better when you visit the portal using a computer.
Step #2. Choose whether you wish to open a personal account or a business account.
If you’re opening an additional account, you may not need to provide too much information; just your previous NUBAN and your BVN will be sufficient for the engine to extract other information about you.
NUBAN is an acronym that stands for Nigeria Uniform Bank Account Number. It is a 10-digit Bank account numbering system.
But if you’re opening an account with GTBank for the very first time, then you need to choose the open new account.
Thereafter, you’ll be asked to indicate if you’re opening the account for yourself or for your child/ward.
If you’re interested in opening an account for your Kid, GTB has only one account type available: Smart Kids Save (SKS).
If you are, however, interested in opening an account for yourself, then there are four options available. They are:
- GTCrea8 eSavers
- Savings (Tier 1)
- Savings (Tier 2/Tier3)
In the event that you’re not certain about the account type you wish to open, then you might have to visit customer service or contact GTBank customer care online to get a clearer picture on how each of them works.
After choosing your account type, enter your BVN to validate the account. In a case whereby you don’t have a BVN, enter 0 in the space provided on the site.
If, prior to now, you had an account with another bank and a BVN, then your BVN will be used to extract certain information regarding your account so you don’t have to enter them manually.
You might have to provide the following information to complete your account opening request:
- Full name (Surname, First name, Middle name).
- Mobile number
- Email Address
Conclusion on opening an GTB account

There’s so much you can do with your GTB account. One your account opening process is done, you can purchase airtime, pay utility bills and complete all manner of transactions from it.
