Open a bank account
New to Westpac?
If you have a NZ passport or driver licence or a RealMe verified identity, you can open an account in three simple steps. If you don't have one of these, make an appointment at your local branch, and we’ll help you to open your account in person.
- Wait for your debit card to arrive
- Pop into a branch with ID and proof of address
Bring your passport or drivers' license, or other documents for identification, and we'll add a PIN to your card. Then you're all set. More about ID documents
