If one was asked to name one of the fastest ways of opening a bank account in Nigeria, it would definitely have to do with Social media and this one is pioneered by GTBank.

GTBank is now officially making use of Facebook(a social media platform ) as one of its platforms for opening an account. A customer would be able to initiate the process involved in opening an account with them by making use of Facebook.

Why Facebook? Well Facebook is one of the most popular social networking sites in Nigeria and there are already millions of Nigerians registered on it. It only makes sense that a bank like GTBank should ride on that platform and connect with people on a different level.

It is not a complete process for opening an account with GTBank though but it allows you to first initiate the process in order to save you time associated with opening an account and also let you know what you need to do even before reaching the bank's branch. I think this is a good innovation.

You can initiate the opening of an account as a student, worker, business man or even company on GTBank's Facebook and although you will have to complete the process by visiting the bank, it sure saves you some time.

What you will need:
===============
A Facebook account
Internet connection
GTBank Facebook page


How to do it
=============
- Simply log into your Facebook account
- Go to GTbank facebook page at facebook.com/gtbank
- Click on the Open an account link
- Select an account type e.g. GTCrea8, GTSave, Current or others
- Enter your email address and your location
- Click on continue
- Allow GTBank to access your profile when the popup windows comes on
- Confirm your personal details
- Click on continue
- Submit your registration
- Print or Make a note of you transaction code(TC)
- Complete your registration at any bank branch after 2 weeks using your TC.


Completing your registration at the bank
===================================
After you are through with the online registration at Facebook, allow around 2 weeks to pass and then visit your bank to complete the process using the following things:

- Proof of address: PHCN bill, Water bill or other recent utility bill
- Personal identification: Driver's license, student id, international passport
- 2 passport photographs
- Transaction code

Once you provide you transaction code to the customer service, he/she would be able to quickly access the details you've already submitted on Facebook and this would speed up your account opening process.

    Felix
    Thanks a lot for your informative blog.
    I wanted to ask whether you know what the process of opening a fixed deposit account in GTB is?. I have a current and savings account with them and want to take the opportunity of fixed tenures to earn some interest over a period of time. Thanks.

    @Aduke, opening a fixed deposit account is quite easy if you already have a savings or current account with them. In your case, all you probably need to do is fill an application form or just write an application letter.

    So the 3 things you need to do are
    ===
    - first ensure you have good capital in the account e.g. N200,000+
    - Inquire what the current rate for fixed deposit is from customer service
    - Apply for a fixed deposit account formally indicating your capital, time period and agreed rate

    Re: How to Open a GTBank account online using Facebook Reply by Felix Okoli on Wednesday October 2, 2013 at 10:43:51:

    First of all, you are not yet 18 and so can't open an account by yourself except through your parents or guardian.

    Just tell your parents to open a kiddies account on your behalf and then also apply for internet banking and a mastercard debit card.

    You should then be able to access the account online using internet banking as well as withdraw or make payments using your debit card on P.O.S. machines and ATMs.

    You may also

    Re: How to Open a GTBank account online using Facebook Reply by Felix Okoli on Monday January 20, 2014 at 21:26:57:

    I wonder why you changed your name. You need to use your real name when doing business or opening a bank account. What you should do is open a bank account with your real name. It can be hard changing your bank account name without an affidavit or something like that and to open a new account with a new name, I wonder what documentation you'd use to prove that.

    Well you can open a bank account almost immediately online using the Facebook service. Just go to the page and go to apps and you'd be able to open an account even without visiting the bank. You need to open the gtbank Instant savings account.

Tell your bank to activate it for international use and they would do it.
