Personal US checking bank account creation without SSN - 2021

Hi folks,

Being a non-resident US alien status, HOW and WHERE can I open a personal bank account from my home country without physically visiting the USA in 2021? Considering,

  1. I do not have an SSN
  2. I don’t prefer Transferwise aka Wise rather a real Bank account

TIA

Best Regards
Rafat

What is your home country? If you have somewhat of a significant asset, you might be able to talk to a U.S. multinational bank in your country and see if they can make an introduction.

Otherwise, if your goal is to be able to send/receive USD, I see nothing wrong with Wise. Or even Revolut.
