Open a Bank Account in Singapore while Living Outside of Singapore


To open a bank account in Singapore while living outside of Singapore, you will need to choose a bank that offers this service. Not all Singaporean banks offer remote account opening for foreign residents, so contact Bestar.

Once Bestar has connected you to a bank, the bank will gather the required documentation. This will typically include:

  • Proof of identity, such as your passport or national ID card

  • Proof of address, such as a utility bill or bank statement

  • Proof of income, such as a recent employment contract or paystub

You may also need to provide additional documentation depending on the bank's requirements. For example, the bank may require a reference letter from your existing bank or a letter of explanation for why you are opening a bank account in Singapore.

Once you have gathered all of the required documentation, you can submit your application online or by mail. If you are submitting your application online, you will typically need to upload your documents electronically. If you are submitting your application by mail, you will need to send your documents to the bank's designated address.

Once the bank has received your application and documentation, they will review your information and make a decision. If your application is approved, the bank will open your account and send you your account details.

Here is how to open an account in Singapore while living outside of Singapore:

The Bank offers a remote account opening service for foreigners with e-passports and ID cards. To open an account, you can download the bank Digital app and follow the instructions.
