First post here and so excited to be part of this community. I’m a US citizen looking to open a personal non-US bank account that allows ATM withdrawals. I need to be able to open it online, as a non-residents, and without visiting the country. Any suggestions?
I’m currently exploring the options in the community discussions here and here, but I’m having trouble finding one that actually fits my requirements. Ones that seem easy to open online seem to not be available for US citizens and ones that US citizens can open seem to be US banks.
The reason I need a non-US bank is because of some geo-political tension between the country in which I reside and the US. There’s rumors that the country or the US might cease financial network cooperation, and I’d like to still be able to withdrawal cash! My thinking is to transfer from my US bank account to this new non-US account, and then either use an ATM card or transfer into my local bank account from the non-US account.
Any suggestions or ideas?
