Open a bank account
New to Westpac?
If you have a RealMe verified identity, you can open an Everyday Account, apply for a debit card and/or open a Simple Saver Account online in minutes. You can also PIN your debit card online so it will be ready to use once you get it - no need to come in branch!
If you have a NZ passport or a NZ driver licence, you can start the process of opening an Everyday Account online. Once your debit card arrives, pop into a branch with your ID and proof of address, and we'll add a PIN to your card. Then you're all set!
Note: You may need to come into branch if further information is required.
If you don't have any of these forms of identification or if you'd like to open a different account please call 0800 400 600 to make an appointment at your local branch, and we'll help you open your account in person.
