How to Open a Swiss Bank Account
We tried really hard to locate banks and financial service providers with easy-to-use procedures. We are monitoring the market constantly to be able to offer the more flexible and user friendly swiss bank account opening process.
Please take care and be precise at the entering of your data. It’s important that all the fields have to be filled properly. The bank needs your information to fulfil the legal rules, without these your account can not be opened.
The bank will send you several forms which you have to sign and send back. You also have to send back a notarised copy of an ID document, which can be a passport, an ID or a driving licence. Your personal document has to be legalised or notarised, which means that a lawyer, notar or an embassy will make a copy of the document, and officially proves that the copy is a legal copy of the original document. This is also a very important step, without official notarised/legalised copy of your personal document your account can not be opened by the bank.
After the bank receives the signed forms and the notarised/legalised copy of your passport your account will be activated in 3-4 days and it will be fully operational. After having your swiss bank account opened, we close your file and we delete every data you have sent to us. From this point your data will be available at the bank, and only at the bank.
Opening a Swiss Bank Account online has never been easier. I was able to get started within minutes.
