Banking for Migrants, Temporary Residents and International Students
Establishing a bank account is an absolute priority for anyone arriving in Australia as either a new migrant, international student or a temporary resident - you will need somewhere for your salary to be paid into and from which to pay recurring bills, such as utilities and health insurance.
Our preferred provider in this area is the National Australia Bank (NAB) who can arrange for an account to be opened prior to your arrival and has a group of staff dedicated to servicing new migrants and temporary residents. These services include having a dedicated, named banker to help organise the account and set up any other services and access to debit cards on your arrival in Australia.
There is a simple application process, available online and taking ten minutes to complete, and identification process when you arrive in Australia (just present your passport to your dedicated banker with 6 weeks of arrival). You just need to complete the Inquiry form below and you will be contacted very shortly with further details.
