Moving to New Zealand in just under a month on a working holiday visa, looking to get bank account set up ASAP. Does anyone have recommendations?

Thanks! Reply to this

Hi Kirsty,

Welcome to TravelBlog!

As to which bank and account is best for you, that will depend on how you'll be using it. Here's the main players for you to start your research with;

Auckland Savings Bank


Bank of New Zealand



Hope that helps, and best of luck with the move down here! Reply to this
