When researching local bank branches, you should inquire about each bank's specific requirements for opening a new account for international students. For your convenience, we have provided sample requirements for some of the banks listed following:
International Students over the age of 18 are welcome to open an account with Chase Bank as long as they have a photo ID w/signature as well as another form of identification. Acceptable forms include: a school ID, a voter registration card, a credit card, a resident alien card, an employment authorization card, or a certificate of naturalization. Chase also provides international accounts specifically for foreign residents.
International students that don't have an SSN must present a valid Passport and Visa as well as a proof address. Examples of such can include any one of the following: cable bill, ground phone bill, signed university letter, etc. If the student already has an SSN, they need that number plus a NY state ID of some kind.
