To sign up to Sharesies while you’re living overseas, you must be able to:

  • provide either a current NZ passport or NZ driver licence, or provide us with certified copies of ID we can accept on Sharesies

  • top up your Wallet from, and withdraw into, an NZ bank account

  • provide and verify a valid overseas address using a government-issued document (including bank statements)

  • provide us with your foreign tax details for the country you’re in.

There may be some tax implications for you, depending on your tax residency. We recommend getting in touch with a tax advisor for any specific questions about this.

Moving overseas

If you have a Sharesies account and you’re moving overseas, you can keep using Sharesies if you can still:

  • top up your Wallet from, and withdraw into, an NZ bank account

  • provide and verify your overseas residential address with a valid government-issued document or bank statement

  • provide us with your foreign tax details for the country you move to.

We’re unable to transfer an NZ resident account to an Australian resident account.
