Dear customer, your issues is identity proving to the bank and that you have to travel a long distance for that reason.

There is another option, you may attend Australian Post and complete a verification of identity. This process is used for property transactions and is also suitable to the banks verification. You will need to present yourself at the local Australia Post Office to do this VOI.

Australia post will charge a small fee for this process. Not all Australia Posts do this service but the main post office will.

If you have any further questions, I am pleased to answer those for you.

Kind regards
