USA bank account during covid?


New Member

Does anybody know what to do about opening a US bank account at the moment? I want to open one for an e2 visa start up business but obviously can’t travel there at the moment because of covid.

Or is there an alternative?

thank you!

Opening a US bank account as a non-US citizen has very strict rules to prevent money laundering and other illegal/terrorist activities.
I understand, as a non-US citizen, you can only open a US bank account in person with the proper photo identification.
Have you called various banks and inquired over the phone?
