The original responses to the post can be read at the bottom of the current post page on the site or in the link to a post on Facebook and of course you are invited to join the discussion
- Capital One Bank - You must come to the US with a passport and show a local address to open an account. When opening a business account, the LLC signer should be present
- Santander Bank - most convenient for investors. You can open an account with a passport and visa (2 means of identification). You can probably display an address in Israel instead of in the US. LLC members can also open bank accounts even if they are not the main signer, but they must be present at the bank.
- These are the fees at Santander Bank
- what do i need to show to open bank account in the us
- What do I need to apply?
For a faster application process, please have the following information at hand when you start your application:
Your Social Security number
Your current residential address
Your email address
Your account number or debit card number to make your opening deposit into your Bank of America account
Co-applicant's personal information (if applicable)
If you are missing one of these pieces of information, you can also schedule an appointment with an associate at your local financial center for a day and time that works best for you.
- What do you need to open a US bank account?
Fifteen minutes is all it takes to open a checking account online at usbank.com, and you can use a credit or debit card to make your opening deposit. You need to be 18 or older and a legal US resident to open a checking account at US Bank. You'll also need: A Social Security Number.
- Although it is possible to remotely open a bank account in the US through a strong banking relationship (example: you already bank with HSBC or Citibank elsewhere and are willing to place a $ 50,000 deposit with them in the US), this is mostly out of reach for small businesses or people who want a bank account there for smaller transactions.
- The only way to open a US bank account in this situation is to do it in person while visiting the US. And even then, several banks will refuse and the ones that do agree will be a little hit or miss.
- I had talked to Citibank earlier about opening an account with them but they said I would need to have an average balance of $ 50,000 with them! Well, that ain't happening !! I visited Chase, Santander, Popular Community Bank, and Capital One on my last trip to New York City. Santander and Capital One agreed to open a bank account for me whereas Chase and Popular Community Bank flatly refused. They said it is impossible for them to open an account without an SSN. It is fully legal to open a bank account without an SSN, but policies vary from bank to bank.
- In short, Santander Taxpital Bank agreed to the opening
- How to open a bank in the United States as a tourist?
- The cheapest and simplest I found.
Except for a debit card (sending to Israel), and to get out of ATMs (not shekels) up to 1500 dollars per withdrawal, up to $ 5000 per month.
Simple and easy.
5 USD only.
- Yi Lior, I have an account at City with over $ 1500 per hour. Do you know of any way to reduce the wired transfer fee to transfer dollars to an account in Israel? I wonder what is the preferred way of transferring rent money to an account in Israel with a minimum transfer fee. Thanks!
- You buy a plane ticket. Name in the 9999 dollar. Up to a thousand 10 allowed. Or transfer Bitcoin. Tamir Shekalim to Bitcoin and from there to dollars and draw here. Or there's a new venture by Sir Richard Brunson - TransferWise - Money transfers almost no commissions. Or if someone in the US needs shekels - he has a shekel in his account and he will deposit you dollars here.
- There are banks only a deposit of 1500 dollars and cancels the account management fees.But not recommended because they are very small banks.And a mass as if they had bankrupt in 2016.I think about 228 banks were closed.
- Jacob, I understand from you that the big banks have account management fees. What about the transfer of money from a bank in the US to Israel. Do they take a commission from the transfer amount?
- And there is another method depositors 50000k and there is nothing fees at all. And also get American Express Platinum credit card
- Does anyone have a CET account in the country and is paying for the transfer of a barrage, a commission of less than 0.175 percent?
- I paid about $ 24000 for $ 47. It was a year ago - I paid 0.19%, but another 200 chess on the transfer. That's about it to the best of my memory. Do not want to mislead, call the workers and ask
- It is also in the big banks. Depositors over 1500 or 2500 and no management fees. Depends on the route. Every bank and its madness. I have accounts in at least 5 banks and I pay no management fees to anyone. At Zayas, they earn at least 15000 in the account, but opening an account gives you a $ 500 gift. TD Bank Ahla Bank - No management fees. City over 1500 has no management fees. bank of america does not remember the minimum but also no management over a certain amount. The problem begins when you enter Uber - there is no Uber in the US. Going down below 0 they start charging a fee every day. Here, anyone who wants to be at Uber uses credit cards and interest rates can also be 20 percent.
- Check good at what bank and what conditions. Markovitz opened two years ago at Wells Fargo and after a few months they limited it to me and wanted me to get to one of their branches to identify themselves. They were not ready for an embassy or anything like that.
