At your local branch
As well as online, you can also open current accounts at our local branches.
Try and read about what documents we can accept to open new current accounts before your visit, as having the right documentation can help speed up the account opening process.
If you don't want to open your account online or can't get to one of our local branches, you can also start the account opening process by telephone.
