RealMe is a joint venture between The Department of Internal Affairs and Kiwibank to verify customers bank applications. Backed by the NZ Government, RealMe Now is a secure platform, that in the future, will be expanded to serve other digital identity needs!
The digital application process is a quick and easy way to prove your identity. By simply visiting www.realme.govt.nz, taking a selfie, and completing the biometric challenges, you can complete the application for your bank account!
The biometric technology behind RealMe was originally made for iOS; and now has been embedded into the online application process for web browsers. RealMe verifies your identity against your passport, allowing for secure authentication via this digital platform.
Getting verified with RealMe only takes a couple of minutes and eliminates the time you need to spend traveling to a physical branch and waiting in line. So, there is no need to visit the PostShop, or even leave your house!
