Title: Here is a difficult one on opening a bank account
Post by: simon ward on November 05, 2020, 01:23:34 AM
Hey Everybody long time lurker!
Got a weird one!!  we are in Canada British citizens moving over we hope- next week, flights willing
we have banked with HSBC for decades ..they have no accounts in Spain are probably the worst I have ever dealt with-maybe the branch?
they are making it difficult to take any money out I can transfer 100,000 a day but need a Spanish account to send to No don't want to send it to anyone else but me lol.

I can't get an account from over here and can't get an Nie number until we land, as the Spanish consulate (which is literally around the corner from us) won't process anything due to Covid.

any idea how or who I can open online from here so I can transfer funds to buy a business and a house to?
anyone else having the same problem ? it is 2020 after all
Thanks !!

Think you may have more luck getting an answer on the Citizens Advice Spain Facebok page.
