Hi folks,

Just a couple of questions:

  • Is there any possibility of changing the address of my account to a foreign address (Switzerland in this case)?
  • Is there any possibility of changing the address without actually walking into a branch (as I've been living abroad for the last three years and the address on my card may soon be sold). I realise that I would maybe have to jump through a lot of hoops. I don't know when the house would be sold and when I would be back in the country and would prefer that my statements would not be sent to strangers.


Thanks for any help!

You can do this no problem, just send your branch a letter - make sure you sign it, asking to amend your address. List what ever accounts you have, current, savings, mortgage, home insurance, credit card etc etc - they have a department that amends addresses on all accounts - no need for separate letters. If any of the accounts are held jointly the other person needs to sign the letter too.

Alternatively, print, compoets and sign form from this link and send into your branch.

Hi BKtje,

Wicklowmum is entirely correct. All you have to do is fill out the form and send in to your branch. We can then update your details for all of your accounts. It'll take approximately 5 working days to process once we receive the form or your letter.

Thanks
Pat

One thing that was not made clear was whether I could change to an address outside the republic. Thanks!

Hi BKtje,

Sorry about that. You shouldn't have any problems changing your address to one in Switzerland. When changing to an address outside of Ireland you will have to provide proof of the new address along with the form. Just send a copy of a utility bill or an official government document in your name and at the Swiss address.

Hope this helps
Pat
