Open a US Bank Account
At the present time we are unable to open a bank account for you. In fact the banks we work with have advised that even if you travel to the US "at the present time", they probably will not accommodate you as well. Before making travel plans please check with the bank you are going to visit and make an appointment in advance. Please note that we are working on the problem and are offering you an opportunity to place your name on a waiting list.
We Have Some of The Solutions To The Following Questions.
Do you want to open a US bank account but are unable to so because you do not reside in the US?
Are you living in the US but need a Delaware bank account for your Delaware corporation or LLC?
Does your internet business need to accept PayPal or Credit Cards who require a commercial US bank account first?
Can't open a US bank account because you do not have a U.S. company?
Non-US Clients And Bank Accounts
If you are planning on opening a US Bank Account, whether you are a US Citizen or an international client Global Corporate Services, Inc. must be listed on the state of Delaware as your Registered Agent.
At the present time we are unable to open a bank account for international clients. Although for the past few years, we have helped hundreds of clients open bank accounts the banks we work with have recently advised that even if you travel to the US "at the present time", chances are they will not open the bank account unless you actually live in the US. Before making travel plans please check with the bank you are going to visit and make an appointment in advance. Please note that we are working on the problem and are offering you an opportunity to place your name on a waiting list.
Several banks have advised us that if an international client has an ITIN number issued by the IRS they might consider them a candidate for a new bank account. Our suggestion is for you to initiate the formation of the new corporation as soon as possible and have us apply immediately for your new ITIN number. However, there is no guarantee the account will be opened.
As far as US citizens go we can help open a bank account as long as you provide us with "due diligence" and have the documentation provided notarized in the US (not a US Embassy).

Disclaimer: You are responsible for making sure that all documents submitted for the purpose of opening a bank account are suitable for such purpose and otherwise legally sufficient. This includes, without limitation, ensuring that the documents are properly dated, executed, and certified where appropriate. However, the Bank may in its sole discretion accept or reject any individual application and is under no obligation to furnish you with an explanation for its actions.
Note: With the establishment of the Patriot Act, not all citizens living outside the US will be permitted to open a US Bank Account. Whether or not you are a citizen of the United States and need a Bank Account the bank at their discretion, will open the account for your new company as long as you have a "valid" reason for needing a bank account in the US, e.g. you need to collect credit card payments over the internet, you own rental property in the US and collect rent that needs to be deposited in a US Bank Account, etc. (not all countries qualify for this opportunity). See below for a list of questionable countries. However at this time it is literally almost impossible for a non US citizen to open a bank account unless they have a legal US Address.
NOTE: We will neither set up a new Delaware company on your behalf, nor refer you to a bank if you are residing and have a passport from Iran, Iraq, Afghanastan, Pakistan, North Korea, Sudan, Western Balkans, Burma, Liberia, Zimbabwe or if your name appears on the OFAC list of blocked persons or companies. That list can be accessed from this link found at List of Specially Designated Nationals and Blocked Persons.
