what you will need

To save you time, here’s a checklist of what you’ll need to apply:

Identification details for new customers

If you’re brand new to Bankwest, welcome! Once your application is approved, we’ll need to confirm who you are by popping into your nearest Bankwest store with an original or certified copy of your choice of the following:

one form of primary ID with a photo (i.e. passport or driver’s license) or
two forms of primary ID without a photo (i.e. birth certificate and government benefits card) or
one form of primary ID without a photo (i.e. birth certificate or Citizenship papers), plus one form of secondary ID (i.e. a utility bill)

To see what else you can use as ID documents, check out our simple guidelines.

Not near a Bankwest store? No worries! Print out our Personal Loan Identify Verification Form (PDF) and take it down to your local Australian Post Bank@Post outlet along with your ID.
