Hey! I am new to this place and want to open a bank account. Could you please let me know the procedure to do this?
Good morning Kathryn. Every bank has it's on application process. What I would do in your place is I would go to the main offices of the Bank you would like to open account with and talk to the representative. Who will give you full information on documents requirements.
Note that HSBC has a department dedicated to British customers.
As well I am adding link for you to check what you would need to bring with you.
