Guaranty Trust Bank plc has raised the service bar for African Financial Institutions, by upgrading its Social Banking offering on Facebook to accommodate Instant GTBank Account Opening. With this upgrade, prospective customers of the foremost Bank can open accounts and immediately get their account numbers while on Facebook, without having to visit any GTBank branch

GTBank Social Banking is a unique offering pioneered by the Bank earlier in the year that allows people open GTBank Accounts, make Account Balance Enquiries, perform Money Transfers and purchase Airtime on Facebook.

To get started, follow these 6 simple steps:
1. Visit the GT Bank Facebook Page Here:
2. Click on the “Open An Account” Tab as illustrated in the image below:

3. You will be directed to an App which handles the Account Creation Process for you.  Like the one in the screenshot below:

4. You would then choose the type of account you want to create,  fill in your Email Address and then your Location and Click Continue. 
  • SKS & STS 
  • GTCrea8 
  • GTSave
  • GTMax 
  • eAccount
  • Savings Account
  • Current Account
5. Next Stop, Add your details in your following categories
Bio Data| Personal Information| Ways to Bank| Next of Kin| Confirmation

6. After filling the form, you would be shown a confirmation page with your Transaction Code.
To conclude, you need to visit the nearest branch within the next 2weeks and then submit the following details.

  • Most Recent PHCN Bill
  • Drivers License, National ID Card or Intl Passport
  • 2 Recent Passport Photographs
That is all. Welcome to the world of Social banking. 
I like to use this medium to wish all our Muslim brothers and sisters a joyous Eid-el-Kabir. May the season bring abundant joy and blessings upon your homes.

  1. Thanks for the info update. Can I apply for GTB master card online? Pls tell me how effective it is in making online transactions.

    1. GTBank Master Card is issued automatically to all GTBank individual current and savings account holders.
      But you can activate it online through GTBank official website to start using it for online payments and purchases.
      GTBank MasterCard is widely accepted online, you cannot use it to effect payment on some sites on the Internet. Some sites may reject it while some may not have provisions for accepting it.
      You can use it on websites like,,,,, (to order PCs, tablets and other electronic gadgets from China or Pay for Domain), and (to purchase electronics, PCs, tablets, computer accessories, cell phones and accessories, handbags, clothes and so on from China) and (to buy domain name and webhosting).
