NAB account Opening a NAB bank account before you arrive means you have one thing less to do when you land in Australia and you can even transfer funds into your account up to 12 months before you arrive.
We don’t need copies of your identification or any other documents at this stage, but we'll need to check them once you are here in Australia.
Your welcome email will include your account details, named banker’s contact information and branch location. You can choose to transfer funds into your account at your convenience before you arrive.
Please note that your account can receive funds, however withdrawals can not be made until you arrive and pass the necessary identification requirements.
Once you have successfully provided proof of your identity as required by Australian law, your named banker will activate your account and provide you with your new bank cards.
You can now access any funds you had transferred before you left home.
