Can I open up an international banking account for a family member from the UK?
Generally speaking, most banks will expect the actual account holder to make all contact especially at the application stage as this is often when security information will be set.
the usual exceptions to this would link to you holding a power of attorney.
you might even find some reluctance from the bank to talk to you about the type of account as they will usually be more interested in talking to the prospective account holder so that they can sell the "benefits" of everything else they offer. | 01.07.11 @ 02:58
