What do I need to apply for a credit card?

  • Proof of identity (if you’re new to Bankwest)

How do I activate my card or payment ring?

An easy way to activate your card or payment ring is via online banking. Once you’ve logged in, select ‘self-service’ in the left-hand menu. Then, select ‘manage my cards’. Select the card or payment ring you wish to activate from the ‘cards to manage’ drop-down menu. Enter the expiry date printed on the card (if you’re activating a payment ring the expiry date is printed on the activation letter). Choose a new 4-digit PIN if necessary, and enter an SMS code to confirm your identity.

If you don’t have access to online banking, please call 1300 796 844 and follow the prompts to activate your card.

If you’re an additional card-holder, the primary cardholder needs to activate their card before you can activate yours.

My card has been lost or stolen. What do I do?

If you’ve lost your card but don’t want to cancel it permanently (in case you find it again) you can place a temporary lock on the card through online banking or the Bankwest App.

To lock your card through online banking, simply log in, and select ‘Manage my cards’ from the self-service menu on the left-hand side. Select the card you want to manage, and select ‘Lock card’ under the ‘temporary card lock’ section.

To lock your card in the Bankwest App, select your debit or credit card account, select the ‘Manage’ tab to view your account details and enable the ‘temporary card lock’.

If you’re certain the card is lost or has been stolen, after you’ve locked your card call us immediately on 13 17 19 if you're in Australia, or +61 8 9449 2840 if you're overseas, to have it cancelled and arrange a replacement. Don’t worry if you’re overseas, we have a handy table of international numbers below.

Once you’ve reported your card, please allow 5-10 working days for your new card to arrive. If you find your old card after you’ve had it cancelled, please note it can’t be reactivated, so please destroy it.
