I needed a Euro Currency Bank account - one I could pay Euros (amongst other countries) into and offered a EURO Debit Card.

I was recommended N26 Bank - and have signed up - what a fantastic experience... All done online and the Identity Verification was great.

I used
1) a France Address
2) NZ Passport
3) NZ Drivers License
4) NZ Mob Ph num
5) Gmail address

Big shout out to the team at N26 - the service / support staff were excellent..
Ping me if you have any queries

I had a friend in France Allen w me to use their address - the only postal mail I got was the debit card
I tried to change the address by for N26 France it has to be a French addres

I’ve used it man6 times, currently using it now to send nz$ to Oz.
I have found it very good. If I’m sending NZ$ to UK£ I can send the transfer around 4pm nz time and it can be in my uk bank by 9pm nz time - requires good timing but has worked well.
I used a bank transfer this week as I though5 it would be faster - sent monies from NZ to my N26 account , took 3.5 days.
