What Documents Do I Need to Apply for an ANZ New Zealand Credit Card?
Streamlining Your Credit Card Application Process
Applying for an ANZ New Zealand credit card is usually a quick and easy process. However, you can make your application much smoother by ensuring you have the right documents ready to go.
Applying for Your ANZ New Zealand Credit Card
Before you go ahead and apply for any ANZ New Zealand credit card, always take the time to check the different options available. Some card types will be more suited to regular credit card users, while others may be better suited for emergency use only.
Be sure you’ve chosen a card type that best suits your own financial situation and spending patterns. Once you’ve done this, you can apply easily using the simple, secure online application form.
The online application form should only take you 10 or 15 minutes to complete, but you’ll find that your approval will be much faster if you have some documentation ready to go before you begin.
Remember, the online application form is timed. This means if you need to leave your computer to search for documents, your session may time out and you’ll lose any information you may have already entered into the system.
Which Documents Will You Need for Your Application?
Before you begin the online application form, take some time to get out your income verification. This allows you to enter accurate income figures for assessment purposes. For employed people it can include the following:
- Recent payslips
- Salary notices
- Copy of bank statements showing your salary deposits
- A letter from your employer showing your income
- A notice from the Inland Revenue Department showing ‘summary of earnings’
If you’re self-employed, you may need to provide the following forms of income verification:
- Two full years financial statements
- A signed copy of your personal Statement of Financial Position
- Personal tax returns
Other Information Required
The online application form may ask you for your employer’s name, address and contact details, so be sure you have these things handy before you begin. You will also need to know how much you pay on any existing debts each month. These figures will be entered into your liabilities and will need to be accurate, so grab this information as well.
Keep in mind that you will need to be over the age of 18 at the time of submitting your application. You will also need to be a permanent New Zealand resident to qualify for an ANZ New Zealand credit card.
Documents Needed After Your ANZ New Zealand Credit Card is Approved
While the ANZ online credit card application form is quick and easy, you will still need to provide the ANZ with some identification before your account can be activated.
Acceptable forms of ID include:
- New Zealand driver’s licence
- Photo ID card
- Current credit card
- Current debit card
- Bank statements
- Community services card
You can take copies of your ID into your nearest ANZ branch.
