STEP 3: A US based mailing address

Even when the bank will agree to open a US based account for a non-US resident, they will ask for a US based address to send your mails.

They normally open the Premier account when you don’t have a US based address. The solution is to hire a mailing address and use that to ask for the free account. You need to set that addres for the mails in the form W8-BEN you will need to fill.

You will also need an utility bill to certify the address. Now, as you will not be able to get that utillity bills with the mailing address service they will sent the documentation of the account to your local address (except the online banking password, more on that later)

Remember to check our resouce about US Address.

      HSBC will ask you $15k of deposit. You will need US based address to receive documents, credit card from the bank.

    HSBC Bank is very very bad service.
    They proud to be deposit with their account minimum 10k. this such a stupid idea to deal.
    Bank is not need to make his proud, they must need to be have deal for peoples.
    I am looking the one bank of HSBC Bank which i lac hat to deal with.

    They need money nothing else, they use money yours and nothing. so bad.

    I don’t like to deal with HSBC and even i know no body, we like the bank who deal for poor peoples around the world.

    For rich peoples who work it’s means that he love with money nothing with anybody.

    HSBC service of deposit to minimum of $10K or $15K is not good for many average people that do not even get $1K and which other Bank in US now has the hearth for average people that will allow non resident to open and operate US Bank account now with less than $5oo to deposit money with it.
