Moving abroad is challenging as it is — so there’s no reason why setting up your financial life should be difficult, too. We know that from personal experience, and that’s why we’re working relentlessly to make all things money easier for you than ever. Want a fuss-free financial experience? Here’s what we can do to help:

Open an account in minutes

We won’t ask you to visit a branch or bombard you with paperwork. In fact, opening an account with us only takes a few minutes, and you can set one up directly from your phone. All you’ll need is your mobile number, basic information (name, birth date, email address), a selfie (don’t worry, it’s just to check your identity), and a valid government ID. Easy-peasy!

Spend like a local right away

We thought you’d be eager to start spending immediately, so we created virtual cards. Simply link a virtual card to your Google Pay or Apple Pay in the app and you’re good to go. No need to wait for a physical card to arrive, you can start using your money straight away. Handy, right?

Send money internationally with low fees

Financial borders are becoming a thing of the past, which is why we let you send and spend abroad in 30+ currencies at the interbank exchange rate. Plus, you’ll get free and instant payments to other Revolut users and low remittance fees when you send money through us.

Your money is safe with us

We know that using  a financial super app like ours is a new experience for many, so we’d like to assure you that the safety and security of your assets is our top priority. We operate under a bank guarantee, and our award-winning anti-fraud system helps us detect suspicious transactions as soon as possible, so we can act fast and freeze your card until you confirm it was you in the app.

So, ready for a hassle-free financial experience?

Setting up your finances for living abroad has never been easier. With Revolut, you can control your financial world from your phone (or on the web, if that’s your thing) and spend more time on the things that matter. Oh, and welcome to Australia! We’re thrilled that you’re here.
