Personal Current Account Identity Requirements

In order to comply with legislation to combat money laundering and terrorist financing, we will need to see suitable documentation to verify both your identity and your current permanent address. We will advise you of what is required at the time you seek to open your account.


Suitable Proof of Identity:

1. Current Valid signed Passport
2. Current Valid Driving Licence - must contain photograph (Irish Provisional accepted)
3. Current EU National Identity Card


Suitable Proof of Address:

Proof of Current Permanent Address (Documents must be no more than 6 months old ):

Note: Please talk to one of our staff at your local AIB branch if you do not possess the documentation outlined above. Photocopies of documents are not acceptable

The name on your photographic identification (e.g. name on your passport) must exactly match the name on your proof of address (e.g. full name on your gas bill).
