You can apply to be a RaboDirect customer by clicking 'Apply now' in the menu and selecting the account you would like to open.
Please have handy your IRD number, the account number for an account you hold at another bank and your driver licence number (if you have one).
As soon as you have submitted your application online, you will be advised of documentation we require (if any). Documentation requirements will depend on the account type, as well as whether or not we have been able to successfully verify your identity electronically.
You will also be advised of your new RaboDirect account number and asked to make a payment from your existing 'nominated account' to the account number. Please enter 'Verify' in the payment details.
Nominated account - Your nominated account is an existing account you hold at another bank. To protect your funds, any transfers out from your RaboDirect account always go back to your nominated account.
Once we have completed your application, we will courier your welcome pack which will include the Digipass (a security device that allows you to access your account securely) and instructions on activating your account. You will then be able to log in online, complete transfers and invest in our range of excellent products.
