Open a term deposit account

I’d like to open a term deposit account as Ive found the best rate at bnz. Im currently overseas and will be staying here for over a year so I can’t physically come in for an appointment. I have another NZ bank account and hoping to move the money from my NZ bank to the bnz term deposit. Is it possible for me to open an account with you either by phone or email?

Log into your internet banking and set it up yourself

Unfortunately I don’t have a bnz account - i have accounts with other nz banks - asb and anz. Im overseas which also makes it difficult to have a face to face meeting with the bank person…

I think I’d need an account with bnz to log into internet banking - am I wrong?

Hi @Katie21 , thanks for getting in touch! To open a Term Deposit with BNZ you’ll first need to open an account. To open an account, you’ll need to visit a BNZ store to complete the process. From there, we will be able to open a Term Deposit for you. However, as you’re overseas I’m afraid you will need to wait until you return to New Zealand. I’m really sorry for any inconvenience this may cause. Cheers, Tarah
