Bank account set-up

If you need an Australian bank account, we can get you set up before you arrive.

Getting your bank account is important and it can be hard to do from another country. If you’re moving to Australia, you don’t need to wait until you arrive to get your banking organised.

Your IDP Counsellor can help you open a bank account with a leading and credible bank as early as three months before you travel.  That way, you can transfer your money quickly and securely before you leave home so it’s ready and when waiting when you arrive.

It’s one less thing to for you to think about as you prepare to move. You can activate your account when you arrive in Australia, giving you access to online banking, a debit card, and heaps of special offers for students.
