Prior to opening a personal account with our bank, we will require at least two reliable references. These may include acceptable bank references or employer's references. In addition, we will inquire what use the account will be put to. For more information regarding the opening of a business account, you can contact our Branches at

If the account is to be a corporate account, we will require the Articles of Incorporation of the company, a copy of its registration in the appropriate commercial Register and all the necessary corporate resolutions. In addition, if the account is a non-resident (offshore, exempt) account we will also require acceptable bank references on the beneficial owner of the corporation and legally valid identification documents of the beneficial owner. Finally, as with personal accounts, we will ask to what use the account is to be put.
