US banks very strictly require a physical residential address. That means you cannot use a post office box and need a street number.

I use a mailing service which provides a “physical address”. However, most banks have identified the addresses such services and will flag those addresses as unacceptable. So, I have to use a family members address most of the time.

If you have a physical address, you can use a separate address as a mailing address if for some reason you want paper statements or communication. However, they are very strict about requiring a physical address.

Generally true for large banks (BoA, Chase, Citi, etc). Even if you have a physical address and try to change the billing and mailing addresses to a PO Box afterward, most big banks will balk. However, some small banks and many credit unions will allow for the mailing address to change to a PO Box after the account is opened but you still need a physical address to open.

One issue I ran into with a small regional bank was Chexsystems flagged my US apartment address as a hotel and the bank wouldn’t open the account until I proved Chexsystems was wrong.

In my experience the large banks will still accept a “virtual mailbox” (i.e. not a PO box) as long as they provide a street address. These are typically business addresses, and like @peartreelibrarian said most US banks have started to deny these types of addresses for account opening or as the main address. Only a few years ago the situation was quite different.

BoA did not accept a PO Box for a private account but they said for a company was fine. Maybe Citi is more an international bank and will accept it. All banks require you to go to a branch in person because of the Know Your Customer policy. However, if you try Borderless Account, it has a US bank too but I am not sure the nationality or residency you need, for sure UK residents is fine.

Although you could open US bank accounts online, when you have a US street address, SSN and an account with routing number, you could open Aspiration account online: no citizen ID required.
