    We have decided to open an account with Westpac, which branch in Adelaide do you recommend opening it with?

     

    Thanks in advance.

    Hi,

    the branch near where you are going to live or maybe work would be best, i have accounts at the central market branch in the city and find all the staff very helpful.

    Hi Vikki,

     

    When you open online they automatically open your account with Gouger st in the city. A bit of a pain when you go in with all your documents, it does take a while. You can then use wherever, we use Glenelg near us really helpful and i dont think i would go back to city one as they were not. Online and telephone is also easy to set up, you do this with the initial appointment. Hope this helps, i think westpac are good.

    I don’t think it matters much, we opened one online and we were meant to go to Gouger St but we went passed a branch in Grenfell St one day and just popped in and they sorted it out for us, mind you I was carrying all our paper work around with us for the first few weeks as almost anything we did we had to show ID or meet the 100 points ID thing.

     

    The wife was even asked to show some kind of id just to post a letter to the UK? They said it was to do with terrorism, so I guess terrorists don’t have passports etc :skeptical:

    No it's so they can trace who sent the letter, that is why you have to show ID.

    judging by the number of time it's mentioned, is Westpac one of the main banks to use in Adelaide??

    Westpac offer a migrant service whcih means you can have your account open before you arrive and get all of the online banking working whilst still in the UK.

     

    If you have a job offer, you can also apply for a credit card before you arrive.

     

    On arrival, you just do your 100pts check and pick-up your cards. Very helpful
