ANZ - helping you meet the needs of your clients
ANZ is the principal business partner for the New Zealand Association for Migration and Investment (NZAMI).
We recognise the importance of migrants to New Zealand and we are well placed to meet the needs of new residents with a full range of banking and financial services.
Is your client moving to New Zealand?
It may be one of the biggest and most exciting challenges they will ever undertake. We understand how complicated and time consuming moving to a new country can be, so whether they’re moving to New Zealand to live or study, we can help set up their bank accounts before they even leave home, meaning that’s one less thing for them to worry about after they arrive in New Zealand.
Setting up a bank account before they leave home
- If they plan to live in New Zealand for six months or more, we can help open a transaction or savings account in New Zealand before they leave home
- They can then transfer funds across and have ready access to their money when they arrive*
- Their EFTPOS card (also known as a ‘cash card’ or an ATM card) will be ready for them to pick up when they first visit an ANZ branch in New Zealand
- If they will be working in New Zealand and already have a job in hand, they can provide their employer with their ANZ bank account number, to get their salary paid in to their ANZ account.
*Accounts will not be active for withdrawals until they arrive in New Zealand, our Account Mandates forms have been completed and original identification documentation (e.g. a passport) has been sighted.
