Here’s what you need to know about opening an account with GCB.

How to open GCB Bank Account

To open an account, you can simply walk into any GCB branch and speak to one of their customer service representatives.

Alternatively, you can download an application form from the GCB website and submit it at any of their branches.

If this is your first time opening an account with GCB, you will need to bring along the following documents:

  • One passport-sized photograph
  • Valid Ghana identity card (passport/driver’s license/voter ID)
  • Proof of residential postal address
  • A copy of any one of the following: utility bill; tenancy agreement
  • Letter of introduction from employer
  • An initial deposit

If you have any questions or concerns, GCB staff will be happy to assist you.

They understand that banking can be intimidating for first-time customers, and they want to ensure that your experience is as smooth as possible.

After a few days, you will be able to collect your GCB Readycash card from your branch. This card comes with a Personal Identification Number (PIN), which you should keep confidential.

Once you have your card and PIN, you can use any ATM to view your balance and make withdrawals.

You can also use it to pay for items at many stores, without having to write a cheque or use cash.

For added convenience, you can also download the GCB Internet banking form.

This will allow you to access your account online, where you can check your balance and transfer funds.

GCB also offers credit facilities that are easy to arrange. Simply call +233 302 681 531 or visit your nearest branch for more information and to apply.

If you need to deposit money into your account, you can do so by cash or cheque at any GCB branch.

You can also arrange with your employer to transfer your salary directly to your account, saving you the trouble of visiting a branch.

This means that your salary will be paid directly into your account on a set day, giving you instant access from any branch or ATM.
