UK Banking

The banking system in the UK is advanced, however, it can be difficult to open an account when you first arrive from overseas:  be prepared to provide identification documents, proof of employment, and proof of address before being able to open an account. 

Below is a list of some of the more popular UK banks. Visa Bureau has no direct relationship with any of these banks and therefore cannot comment on their reputation or suitability.

You should seek independent financial advice to find out which bank is the most appropriate for you.
