New customers - moving to Australia
Opening a bank account before moving to Australia could help make the transition a little easier. If you are currently overseas but are planning to move to Australia, you can apply for an ANZ Access Advantage account prior to your arrival. You would have the ability to transfer funds to the account before you leave home and be ready to receive payments once you arrive. Once you arrive, simply visit an ANZ branch to complete the Customer Identification Process and you will be able to withdraw funds from your account.
