Within six weeks of arrival you will need to activate your pre-opened Australian ANZ bank account, which you can do by visiting any ANZ branch. You will need to take your passport with you for identification purposes.

We recommend this is one of the first things you do. Before you leave we can provide you with the address of a branch near to where you’ll be staying. While activating your account, the ANZ branch in Australia can also arrange access to internet and phone banking. An ANZ Access Card will be mailed to you within five business days.

With your everyday banking needs taken care of, the door is open for you to access our wide range of financial solutions to suit your needs.
