    Over the past few months, after refinancing to a new bank (twice), I've had to open a deduction account and been given a wee info pamphlet that lists the requisites for opening an account. Such requisites include a passport. Not as one of a few options. No. They want your passport and your drivers' licence, although the licence can be substituted with a firearms licence, a NZ ID card (whatever that is) or an over-18 card.
    As I don't currently have a passport, this threw them into something of a tizzy, trying to figure out what accommodation could be reached in my case.

    But it got me thinking. Clearly, if a passport is their default ID and they assume that anyone opening an account has a passport, then every man and his dog must have one. International travel, once a luxury after everything else is paid, including a home bought, now is commonplace for most people opening a bank account.

    Prioritising travel over getting ahead is a sure way to not do so. Although I love to travel and traipsing around ruins is my happy place, I haven't done so in years, as I've been putting my money into property.
    My blog. From personal experience.

    Weird. I think I only needed a passport to open ASB account 10 years ago just because I haven't had any other ID. Once I've got NZ driver's license none of other 4 banks asked me for it
