What do I need to open a Current Account?

Existing customers

We like to make things as simple as possible for our existing customers so if you are already a KBC customer you probably won’t need to provide any more ID. If we do need anything, we’ll let you know.

New customers

If you are applying for a current account in one of our Hubs you will need to provide one original proof of photo ID and one original proof of address verification (issued in the last 6 months).

If you are applying online or over the phone you will need to provide two proofs of photo ID and two proofs of address verification (issued within the last 6 months).

To make it easier you can email a clear scan/photo of your documents proofs to us at salesenquiries@kbc.ie or post photocopies to us at: KBC Current Account Team, FREEPOST, PO Box 8666, KBC Bank Ireland plc, Sandwith Street, Dublin 2.
