Moving to New Zealand?

If you're heading to New Zealand to work or study, we think you've chosen a great place! You can open an account before you arrive in New Zealand, as long as you meet a few criteria.

Foreign currency accounts

Hold funds in a foreign currency rather than having to convert your money into New Zealand dollars. A foreign account could be handy if you regularly make or receive foreign payments, or if you’ve recently moved to New Zealand.
