How can a Foreigner or Expat open a bank account in Singapore? 

You can now open a bank account in Singapore without having to visit Singapore.  Whether you are a foreigner, tourist or expat who is relocating to Singapore, you can simply submit an online application from wherever you are to open a Singapore bank account.  You do not need even a tourist visa to apply for one.


For a foreigner who is not living in Singapore, some banks may allow you to open a Singapore bank account for savings, trading or investment. You can apply online for a global bank account without visiting Singapore.


For an expatriate who is planning to relocate to Singapore, you can apply for a bank account online even before you arrive in Singapore so that you can transfer funds from your home country before moving to Singapore.
