Bank account set-up

If you need an Australian bank account, IDP can help set it up before you arrive.

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

Your IDP Counselor 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 will be ready to use when you arrive. On the other hand, this means it’s one less thing for you to think about as you prepare to move. Great, isn’t it?

You can activate your account once you arrive in Australia, giving you access to online banking, a debit card, and heaps of special offers for students.
