Default Opening a US Bank from Overseas?!

Hey,

I'm in the need of an US Bank account. Do you know if there's any US bank that can open an checking account for me without a SSN? I have an US mailing address and I can send them my documents by mail, certify by a notary or anything...

Thanks in advance,
Marcell

Every Bank requires an SSN and Legit Information....you can't just sign up using phake information.

But you don't have an SSN....so it doesn't matter if you use your real information.

I am not an expert on this, but I have heard of foreign citizens signing up for US accounts if they come here with their passport and meet the banker in person. Of course, this was a few years ago, regulations may have changed since then.

Unless they open up a business company name that has it's own TAX ID #, INC., CO,. LTD,. etc.

You can open one up. Even with just a passport in the USA if you stay over there for a long amount of time like 6 months, even students with a visa may open one up but they'll copy the passport. There are tons of ways of doing this.

But for you opening up a business with a TAX ID # is the way to go for your business.

You may open one up online, and so on. No clue if you must be there in person or not. Some allow this, some don't. etc.

Something tells me, with the extensive verification banks have to do now because of ID theft, you can't just apply for an ITIN and open USA business bank accounts online.

But if there is a way, you would also need to file articles of incorporation for your business in a USA state before you'd be eligible for a business bank account.

It is possible to so but its not simple or easy.
I would start by researching the bigger banks in your country. Most larger bank have operations in the US and if they do you might be able to open an account through them.
Also, check if international bank - such as HSBC - operate in your country because those always have an operation in the US and if you an account with them in your own county and have a decent history with them they also might allow you to open a US based account through them.
