Guys, we only open BUSINESS ACCOUNTS.
So many of you are asking us:
Can I open personal account in the U.S."?
Well, we are sorry - but no, to open a personal account, you must travel to the U.S. and identify yourself at the bank, with your passport.
The only option to open a U.S. account remotely, without travelling is a BUSINESS ACCOUNT.
To qualify for a U.S. business bank account you need:
1. U.S. Company with EIN

X Montenegro X Nicaragua X North Korea X Russia

How long it takes to open a U.S. business bank account?
It takes about 7-14 business days to review all of your information, prepare any additional required documents, submit the application to the bank and follow up with the bank's new account department until they approve the account.

I bought a package without GUARANTEED BANK ACCOUNT. How do I upgrade?
If you ordered the “Tax free LLC and Bank introduction: open remotely from anywhere” package and still want the GUARANTEED BANK ACCOUNT, you can add it to your package: Click to add>
If I do not want to add the GUARANTEED BANK ACCOUNT?
In our “Tax free LLC and Bank introduction: open remotely from anywhere" is the world!” package you will apply for a U.S. bank account yourself, using our interactive guide and referral, but we do not guarantee the account opening.
Why it is not recommend?
Successfully passing a USA bank’s due diligence process is the key to getting approved for a USA bank account. If you try to open the account yourself - you risk rejection because you are not familiar with the USA banking laws and don’t know what exactly the bank is looking for in order to approve your application for a new account.
That’s what we do for you.
We guarantee you will pass the due diligence prices and get approved .
