6. Total timeframe for account opening is 2 weeks from start of the application

Skype call or face to face meeting is required by the bank with the UBO once the account is officially approved.


KYC and Due Diligence requirements of the bank:

  • Apostille passport

  • Source and value of wealth (some of the below could also be satisfactory for the bank)
    • Personal latest Tax Return

    • If wealth is derived from dividends then audited Financial Statements of Companie(s) paying out dividends
