Returning Home

It doesn't matter why you moved abroad or how long you've been away for, it's always good to come home.

Moving back to Ireland can be challenging. As a returning emigrant you’ll have so many items on your agenda in your first few weeks. Much of your time will be spent organising basic things such as a mobile phone, driving licence, car insurance and health insurance.

If you have already secured employment, you will need to register for tax and complete a lot of paperwork. If you wish to move on quickly from your temporary address into more long-term accommodation, you might want to look for a place to rent or even to buy.

We want to give you one less thing to worry about – which is why we’ve made it easy for you to set up a bank account before you come back home.

Transferring money from abroad to your new account will mean that you have funds readily available when you move home. We can explain the foreign exchange options available to you and help you manage fluctuations in the exchange rates.

With 365 online and our mobile banking app, you’ll be able to track each transfer you make and enjoy peace of mind that your money has been transferred safely.

We’re available 24/7, which means that no matter what time zone you’re in, our specialist team is available to answer your questions. You can contact us for a chat about your options by phone or online. We can then arrange for you to talk to an advisor on Facetime or Skype.
