Basic information about opening a bank account in the U.S.

The requirements for opening bank accounts in the United States are not simple. This is because this sphere is very strictly regulated, and a financial institution may be deprived of its license in case of any violations.

Nevertheless, a non-resident of the USA can open an account in a U.S. bank. It is even possible to open offshore accounts (offshore companies can only operate abroad; they are not allowed to operate in the USA). Before opening up a U.S. bank account, it is necessary to know that each state has its own rules regarding registration in the banking system and servicing of foreigners. For example, the most loyal jurisdiction for foreign business is the state of Delaware. Here, many companies register for offshore activities and open accounts. The rules for opening accounts for foreigners and foreign business may differ from state to state, so knowing about them in advance is necessary. Thus, if you wonder, ‘Can I open a U.S. bank account as a foreigner?’, the answer can be provided only when you select the state.

It’s impossible to open a U.S. bank account online without being present in person. You will have to visit a bank branch and undergo an interview. It is not possible to do this remotely via the Internet.



Advantages of opening a bank account in the USA

Opening up a U.S. bank account offers several important benefits, including:


Capital security

The USA is the country with the most developed banking system in the world. Here, clients’ funds are maximally protected and insured by the state.

Ability to conduct business in the United States

The business can pay wages, conduct transactions with minimal fees throughout the U.S., and accept customer payments without problems.
