How do I open a non-resident account?
If you are moving to Ireland or coming back home after living abroad, please contact our Coming to Ireland team. They can arrange to call you at a convenient time by phone, Facetime or Skype.
To open a current account you will need scanned copies of the following documents:
- A current valid passport
- 2 proofs of your address. This can be a recent household bill (such as a landline telephone*, electricity or gas bill), or a statement from your bank or financial institution
*We do not accept mobile phone bills as proof of address.
You must get a solicitor or police officer to certify your identity document and household bill. If your household bill is not in English, you must translate it using a company offering this service.
If you intend to remain living abroad you can apply using the following numbers.
