Can I open a Canadian bank account from within the US?
I am Canadian citizen residing in the US for many years. I would rather not travel to Canada just to open a bank account if possible.
- Does anyone know if I can open an account online without having to present ID in person at a later date?
- Or, if there are any alternatives that are acceptable for providing the required documentation other than in person at a branch?
- I would really like to be able to walk into a bank in the US and present my Canadian ID and have an account opened that deposits can be made into this account from within Canada.
I don't know what problems this may create on either side of the boarder, but what I can gather from the internet is that my address in the US may prevent me from opening a Canadian account. Does anyone know if this is true? Just looking for accurate information to rely upon. I do have a SIN and Canadian passport, but a US address. What name does TD bank in Canada operate under in the USA?
