You can apply for a credit card online whether you’re new to Kiwibank or if you’re already with us. Before you apply there's some criteria you'll need to meet, and there's a few checks we'll need to do before we can offer you a credit card.
You'll need to meet the following eligibility and lending criteria:
Complete the online application form. It should only take 10-15 minutes to complete. If you're already a Kiwibank customer, you can apply within internet banking or our mobile app where some of the form will be prepopulated with your details.
It usually takes one to three working days to process a credit card application. We'll email you to let you know the outcome.
If there's anything extra we need from you at this stage, we'll give you a call or email.
If approved, we'll send you your new credit card in the post.
When it arrives, follow the instructions that come with the card to activate it and to add a PIN.
If you think you meet the above criteria you can start your application now. Choose the credit card that suits you or compare credit card rates and fees.
