  • Once you turn 15, you can get a Visa Debit Card to buy things online, over the phone and overseas.

If you’re opening a new account with Kiwibank, we’ll need to see some ID to verify your identity and your address at your local Kiwibank.


Youth accounts are available to anyone aged under 19 years. Accounts are opened in the child’s name but with different account set-up options available, based on the child’s age.
