2. Benefits associated with opening an offshore HSBC bank account

Having an offshore bank account with HSBC allows individuals and businesses to manage their financial transactions effectively across different regions and maintain a stable banking portfolio. Other main benefits of having such an account include, but are not limited to:

  • Provides customers with the opportunity to enjoy tax-efficient      savings based on the kind of investments they make.

  • In addition, an offshore HSBC account allows people and      businesses to receive, transfer, and hold monies while using different      currencies.

  • The account also gives customers a way of maintaining the same      banking portfolio every time they move without changing currencies depending      on the region they are working.

 

3. Documents required for opening an offshore HSBC bank account

The standard documents needed for setting up an offshore HSBC bank account are proof of ID and proof of address. However, this is still subject to local laws, requirements, and regulations of one's country or region, so do not be surprised if you are asked to provide more documentation when trying to set up the account.

 

In case of any issues with your documentation, one may ring up the HSBC international call center and ask to speak to a representative who can assist with your application.

 

4. Fees associated with setting up an offshore HSBC bank account

Currently, one may open an offshore HSBC bank account free of charge. This also includes no annual maintenance costs for the account. However, it is important to point out that these benefits only apply to customers with an existing HSBC Premier Customer account or HSBC Jade account. The bank also waives fees for its clients who apply for offshore bank accounts online.

 

If one does a phone or staff-assisted offshore bank account opening, certain charges will apply depending on the region. There is also a maintenance fee charged monthly for those accounts that do not meet the eligibility criteria, often determined by their country of residence.

 

5. The process of opening up an offshore HSBC account

Opening an offshore HSBC bank account can be done in three ways:

  1. Through your local HSBC branch

  2. Online application

  3. At the HSBC branch of your intended destination

 

It should also be stated that with the current COVID-19 situation, one does not have to physically visit the bank to apply for an offshore HSBC account. Instead, you can submit your request via an online application and liaise with the bank's international call center to process your request. However, you can only do this if you already have an HSBC account in your country or region.
