Our application process

How long will it take to open my new account?

If you apply online or through the branch your account will be opened immediately after our decision to accept your application and your details should come through straight away. It may take a little longer if your application was over the phone as we will need to receive your signed form, once we receive this we will send you a confirmation letter with your account details.


We value your feedback. Did you find this article useful?
