    Opening an account in Australia

    Nothing to do with living in HK, but I would like to draw on any experience others may have.

    My son is about to move from the UK to Australia, and needs to open an account with an Aussie bank before he leaves, if possible. Does anyone know of a bank that he can easily do this with in the UK please? He currently banks with Lloyds.

    Thank you

    ANZ Bank - Moving to Australia

    From this page:
    Many people who move from the UK to Australia decide to open both an everyday bank account (similar to a current account) and a savings account before they move to Australia. ANZ offers three options for you to choose from before you move.
    Opening the account is something he should do himself.

    Thank you - I will check that out for him. I am doing the caring mum bit, trying to do the 'legwork' for him, so he has all the information he needs, as he has rather a lot to do, and not too much time to do it all!
    If I just had a magic potion to take away all stress........................

    But I will remember to remind him to take plenty of socks!!
