Documentation required with application
Please note it is essential you have the certification of your documents carried out correctly. Any that are not
certified as per the instructions will be rejected! This means it must carry an official stamp, the words “I HAVE
ORIGINAL”, the certifier‟s name in block capitals, as well as the certifier‟s address, telephone number and
position, and signature.

Suitable Certifiers are Bank Managers, Police Officers, Accountants, Lawyers and JPs. Your documents will not
be accepted if they are signed by anyone else besides the above! (Customer service reps, or any other staff
member from a bank will not be accepted unless they are a Bank Manager)

Please note that not all JP‟s or other certifiers will have an official stamp – Please ensure your certifier does have
an official stamp before certifying your documents as we can not accept your documents without an official
stamp! No exceptions can be made to this rule.

The required documents for opening an account are:

1)   Confirmation of your identity

         A certified copy of your passport - Make sure that the document is certified correctly as per the
         instructions above.

         Your passport(s) must be valid and show your date, place of birth and signature. Your signature must
         be the same as that on your application form.

         If your passport shows a different signature than what you have put on your application form:

         You will need to supply another certified copy of your passport and then place your signature on the
         side and have a certifier certify it as per the instructions above along with the wording “I certify this to be
         a true copy of the new signature” So in total you will have 2 copies of your passport if your signature is
         different – one verifying the passport and the other verifying your new signature.

         If you hold dual passports you will need to supply certified and stamped copy of both of your passports.

2)   Confirmation of your address

     You need to provide at least one document from the list below:

         i)    Original utility bill (not mobile)

         ii)   Bank Statement or

         iii) Credit card statement

     This document must show your current Australian residential address which you state in section 1.2, be
     dated within the last 3 months, and is either an original or certified as per the instructions above if it is a copy
     or internet print out. Please note internet print outs must contain the certification wording “I certify that these
     documents were printed in my presence” and have all required certifiers information as per above.

     PO Box addresses are NOT acceptable.

If you need any clarification on the correct documents you can use or can not provide any of the above, please
contact our office to discuss!

Certifying your passport photocopy
Your passport(s) must be valid and show your date, place of birth and signature. Your signature must be the
same as that on your application form. If you hold dual passports you will need to supply certified and stamped
copy of both of your passports.

Please follow the guidelines correctly as the bank will reject the application if certified incorrectly or by an
unsuitable certifier.

This should be a good quality black and white reproduction
