What do you need to open a bank account in Australia?
If you are not already a MyState Bank customer then you will need the details of your Australian address as well as two forms of identification. We can accept your driver’s licence, Medicare card, and passport. Your identification is verified online in seconds, so you have access to your new account/s with us as soon as possible.
Can you open two accounts in the same bank?
Generally yes, however depending on the accounts that you choose, there may be a limit to one account per person. We’re here to help. If there’s anything that you don’t understand about how to open a new bank account online with us or if you have any questions about the services that we offer, you can call us on 138 001.
Can you open a bank account with no balance?
You are not required to make a deposit into a new account immediately. Review the full terms and conditions of a new account online or contact our customer service team on 138 001 if you have any questions.
Can someone open a bank account in your name?
You are unable to open a bank account in another person’s name if that person is intended to be the sole owner of the account. You will need to be a joint owner of the account. You can open a joint account in both your name and the name of another account holder online in minutes. Please note that identification and verification is required for all names on an account.
What documents do you need to open a bank account?
When you open a bank account, you’ll be asked to provide two forms of identification for verification.
