How to Open a US Checking Account as a Non-Resident

Jan 24, 2022 | Checking Account

Zil is a financial technology company, not a bank or an FDIC member. Zil offers banking services through partnership with FDIC member banks Silicon Valley Bank and Texas National Bank.

For most Americans, an account is one of the essential tools for financial security. While opening a Checking account in the US can be challenging if you’re not a resident, that doesn’t mean it’s impossible. Most US Payment Platforms require you to be an American citizen or permanent resident before they allow you to open an account. However, with Zil, now non-residents can easily open a US Checking account from anywhere in the world.

Requirements for Opening a Zil Account

To open an online Checking account at Zil, the institution needs to know about you and your business. If you’re able to meet these requirements, you can open an account.

  1. Identification: For non-US residents, the platform accepts a passport for identification purposes.
  2. EIN number: As per the requirements, your business needs to be registered in the USA and have an Employer Identification Number or EIN.
  3. Proof of business: Anyone who opens an account with us may need to produce their business details.
