What identification (ID) do I need before I can open my account online?

The quickest way to open your account online is with 2 of the following forms of identification.

  • Passport
  • UK Driving licence
  • Debit Card
  • EU Card

If you don't have these available with you now you will need to take your identification documents to your local branch.
