Existing customers

If you're already a customer, you'll need your NAB ID. Your NAB ID is an 8 - 10 digit number found on the back of your NAB card above the black strip. It's also the number you use to login to Internet Banking.

New to NAB?

If you're not yet a NAB customer, you’re still eligible to apply. You'll need to have two of the following forms of identification:

  • a valid Australian driver’s licence that shows which state issued your licence
  • an Australian passport that has not been expired for more than two years
  • a valid Medicare card with more than two months left to expiry.

Feel like you've got everything covered?
