Opening New Bank Account in USA with No USA Address

Post by puan » Tue Apr 23, 2019 8:42 am

Recently I became extremely dissatisfied with my USA bank of 30 years...they were purchased and the services started deteriorating and the fees started skyrocketing. Typical of banking in America. So I was looking for a new bank BUT had no plans to return to United States any time soon and had no USA address. Started research and solution was found....the State Department Federal Credit Union (saw recommendation on ThaiVisa).

Last month I was able to open new checking account with ATM/Debit card using my Thai address and phone number. Fairly easy process and had to scan and provide them with copies of my passport, social security card, and lease showing Thailand address (in English).

I recommend them to anyone looking for new bank in America using your Thai address. Been very pleased with their customer service and responsiveness.

ACA

But I was not a member at time of application for the credit union but was going to join. Not sure it is verified since I still have not completed the "joining" of ACA.
