RealMe is a way to prove who you are online using a service from the New Zealand government and New Zealand Post. You need to have both your identity and address verified for our application.
Your identity is verified if you have applied online and then visited a PostShop to have your photo taken, or signed up for a verified identity when you renewed your passport online.
Your address is verified if you have entered your New Zealand home address under "manage my account", received a letter with a code in it from NZ Post and then entered the code in to your RealMe account.
If identity and address is verified with RealMe, you'll be able to apply for a new bank account with ANZ - without needing to visit a branch.
If you have verified your identity and address with RealMe you can securely prove who you are, right now.
You can use your RealMe verified identity and address if applying for an individual account only. If you are applying for a joint account, you will be required to come in to a branch to prove your identity.
