Basic bank account opening

23.09.2020 16:24 #1
I currently live in Dublin. I have a Visa Stamp2, which allows me to study and work (part-time). I need to open a basic bank account. I want to know what are the requirements to do it?

Hi Marianoezeg,

Thanks for getting in touch with us today on Boards.ie.

We're glad to hear you're interested in opening an account with ourselves. In order to open this account, you must be over 18, you must be legally resident in the EU, and you must not already hold a personal payment account or current account with any bank in the Republic of Ireland. We have attached a link with some more information here.

We hope this information helps.

Many thanks,
Richard

If you have ever had an account open in the republic of Ireland it is not possible to apply for a basic bank account. 

I hope this helps. 

Thanks Jen
