Can a foreigner open a bank account in Ukraine?

Yes, Ukraine not only allows it, but also makes the procedure itself quite simple, compared to European or American banks. Of course, you will need to go through the procedure of confirming your identity using personal documents, and in almost 100% of the cases you will have to appear at the bank; online opening is a rare situation.

But otherwise, the whole procedure will take a few minutes, we will take care of it. In our practice, there has been more than one case of organizing a visit to a bank based on the foreigner’s stay in Ukraine for only 1 day. The whole secret is in the correct organization of the process and preliminary preparation. We negotiate with the desired bank so that everything is as ready as possible for your visit.

As for the business accounts that we open for our clients, in the future we offer their servicing within the framework of accounting and payroll.

Open bank account in Ukraine

The first thing we will find out from you is why you need a bank account. The fact is that different types of procedures in Ukraine imply the presence of different types of bank accounts. Each of them has its own rules for servicing, depositing, withdrawing funds and even opening costs.

For example, with far-reaching plans to buy an apartment in order to sell it after some time, or use it as an investment to obtain a residence permit, an investment account may be required. But depending on what kind of apartment you are buying and what plans you have for it.

If, for example, you plan to stay in Ukraine and need a current account, then its type will depend on how exactly you build your cash flow. This could be a salary account, or, for example, an account for a private entrepreneur.

That is, our main task is to clarify your plans for using such an account and choose the best option for you.
