How to Register as a VIP in GTA Online

We’re looking at how to register as a VIP in Grand Theft Auto Online

Grand Theft Auto 5 and GTA Online are insanely large and complicated; with literally hundreds of different mechanics, and quality of life features. Given the vast quantity of things throughout the game, it’s nigh impossible to find and remember them all.

So in this series, we’re taking you through some of the most awesome features in GTA, that you probably might not know about.

Before we dive in; if you’re new to the channel, we do How To Guides, News and Giveaways; So consider subscribing and ringing the bell, to stay up-to-date.

First and foremost; you’ll need at least LS $50,000 in your bank account, to be eligible for VIP status. You can quickly check your bank balance by clicking:

  • Z on your keyboard, if you’re on PC
  • On Xbox, tap down on the D-Pad
  • Same for Playstation, too, tap down on the D-Pad

…and what we’re looking for, is the light-green figure.

If the light green figure is below LS $50K; but you have more than LS $50K in total between the light and darker green numbers; you’ll need to deposit your cash-in-hand funds… which can be done from your phone, or any ATM.

Registering as a VIP can be done in a public lobby, invite-only session and solo-sessions; but is not available in Story Mode.

So once you’re ready to go, head to your interaction menu.

  • If you’re on PC, that’s M on your keyboard
  • On Xbox, hold the View button on your controller
  • For Playstation, swipe the touchpad

Once you’re there, head to SecuroServ, then select Register as VIP. After a few seconds, you’ll see the impact notification. Note, the rest of the lobby will also receive a notification on their game feed.

If you receive a message stating you can’t register as a VIP, or the VIP option is greyed out; it means your free-mode session has reached the maximum number of CEO’s and VIP’s it can have. In which case, you’ll need to change sessions…

To do that; head to the Pause Menu, then go to Online and finally, down to Change Session.

About registering as a VIP in GTA Online

SecuroServ is a private security firm that was added to GTA Online as part of the Executives and Other Criminals update for Xbox One, PS4 and PC. Later upgrades like GTA Online: Import/Export have further increased the capability. The group is a minor adversary in the Diamond Casino Heist update.

Assemble associates, and operate various enterprises. VIP is only valid for 4 hours and requires a bank deposit.

Then you’ll never be a VIP again. A CEO can accomplish anything a VIP can do, but at any time, even if they are broke.

A CEO can oversee both Cargo and Vehicle Warehouses. They also receive the Office, an Assistant, and a number of CEO menu items that a VIP doesn’t get.

In actuality, you won’t utilise VIP often because the CEO makes a lot of money and the lowest Office is just one million.
