Any know if I can open a US bank account in miami , have european passport and argentine residence. Friend here tells me he opened one using the address of the hotel?
Charles Schwab does not open bank accounts for foreigners. Even for american citizens they require to have a normal residential address in the USA.I think you can go to a Charles Schwab office and open an account as a foreign national. You get a brokerage account and a bank account.
A Glasgow friend of mine did so several years ago, but he had a visiting teaching job at Berkeley, and used his Canadian passport.I was doubtful when my friend told me, but I have a free day in miami on monday so i guess nothing to lose, might as well try.
