For some reason I thought this would be straightforward. I am travelling and working freelance for NZ companies. I have existing accounts with ANZ bank in NZ and wanted to add a business account and attached Visa card to the stable so that I could keep my business related income and expenses separate for accounting purposes.
The bank is saying that I need to be present at a branch in NZ in order to activate the account. Obviously I’m not going to blow thousands of dollars to fly home so I can do a 2 minute face to face in a branch.
Has anyone else had any experience with doing this?
