Open a bank account in Slovakia
If you need to open a bank account abroad, but you are not sure what country to choose, pay attention to Slovakia. It is a small country, situated in Eastern Europe, and its economy is growing rapidly.
The bank account will help you to travel across the country and enjoy all the tourist attractions. Also, Slovakia provides great advantages for business and investments.
Slovakia does not conduct foreign exchange controls. Local banks are in search of opportunities to attract new capital and develop the market, so they propose benefits for the foreigners.
The pack of documents
The procedure is quite simple – you need to submit only your passport or ID card. Some banks can ask you to prove that you have an address in Slovakia. In case, you have a resident card, that is the only document you need to show in the bank.
In some banks you need to submit an application form, but it is possible to file it in the department. By the way, there are always English-speaking employees. It is better to come in person, but you can open an account in the basis of the power of attorney.
Opening of the account for non-residents
No legal restrictions are regulating or prohibiting opening an account for foreigners.
The procedure is practically similar and you need to submit the same documents. The only difference is connected with the legacy of your stay in Slovakia. Some banks can ask you to show permission for staying in the country.
Other restrictions are connected with the account opening for legal entities. Some banks in Slovakia just do not provide services for non-resident companies. It is always better to negotiate with each bank separately and consider their conditions.
Virtual bank alternative
