Default Plz Advise UK Banks for Non-Citizens

hello,
i am TR citizen and will visit UK soon.
i wish to open some bank accounts for stealth.

but not sure about which banks will help for non-citizens.
i will have limited time with touristic visa,

so your advise and experiences will be very helpful.

Thank you.

I doubt any of the major banks will let you open an account in the UK. What justifiable reason do you have to open an account for a limited visit?

For starters, you'll need a proof of UK address, in your name.

You need proof of residence and as a foreign national most likely proof of your right to stay here / and income.

Banks have verification processes and need to know their customers, they dont just let random people without the necessary information open an account.

So the answer is no, as was clear already from the previous reply.

I cant imagine any bank in the UK letting you sign up with a non-uk / foreign address, no.

HSBC only allow you to open a US bank from a foreign country. Not a UK one.

I just cannot see this being feasible, at all.

Hmm I opened up a UK account from Canada but could be a little different policies in place for Canada.

The deposit requirement was intense initially indeed but not locked in

Interesting. Perhaps the ruling does differ from country to country.
