Should I open an Australian bank account before I leave the uk ?

Hi we are flying out on 30th October to Brisbane on a 457 visa. Should we open a bank account now ? Or should we just open one when we get there ?

 

Any advice would be appreciated

Hi David

Makes sense to open one now, then your ATM/debit cards will be ready and waiting for you when you land. Just a case of going into a branch to pick them up.

I would use NAB http://www.pomsinoz.com/index.php?page=migrant-banking as they don't have any monthly fees, plus when you transfer money over if you use Moneycorp you won't pay any fees on moving your money so it's a win win.

If you are depressed you are living in the past. If you are anxious you are living in the future. If you are at peace you are living in the present.
