Non-resident US Bank Account

February 6th, 2007 by eyal | Filed under Living. | Print This Post Print This Post

Recently I realized that I have quite a few monetary commitments and interests in the US denominated in USD so I started getting interested in opening a bank accountin the US. I tried checking with Citibank here but was offered a local multi-currency account as they don’t have a service for opening a bank account in the US for non-residents/non-citizens. The other bank I’ll be checking with is HSBC, I know they have offshore banking facilities in Channel Islands, but not sure if they can help with getting a US bank account+credit/charge card.

    Most US banks provide checking/saving account for non-residents. You can check Bank of America and Washington Mutual as well.

    Hi ZBS, I’m intending to check out BoA later today. They have a branch here. The main problem is not that I’m a non-resident but that I’m also not living in the US.

    Check Everbank too. If you can provide an address in US that will be sufficient to open an account. Think of all the non-residents in US with accounts.

    VC, I’ll check it out. I don’t have an address in the US though, that together with not being there physically to sign docs is probably more of an issue than the non-residence status.

    It’s very difficult especially if you don’t have an address in the US.
