How do I verify my identity?


There are three ways to verify your identity with Westpac’s identity check:

  • Before you arrive in Australia – visit one of our offshore Westpac offices or an approved certifier such as a foreign bank or Australian Consular officer with your identification documents.
  • After you arrive in Australia – visit any Westpac branch with your identification documents within six weeks of your arrival.
  • Already living in Australia - you can get verified online when you complete the application form. Simply have two forms of identification handy when you complete the form.
