Target clients:

They are looking for larger private banking clients from all over the world, but will also accept smaller accounts. All Latin American clients are particularly welcomed. Relatively high banking fees for transfers out.  Andorran banks are not really keen on opening commercial accounts but may do so for private banking clients.

Plastic cards:

Visa Classic or Gold, both available either as debit cards, secured credit card, or unsecured credit card for larger investors. Classic cards are available that do not show the name of the bank. Currencies: EUR, USD, RUB.

 

Documents and Account Opening Process:

  • Standard set of documents with apostille, plus proof of address.
  • Proof of source of funds.
  • Bank reference is preferred, but account may be opened without depending on the risk and transaction profile.
  • Accounts usually opened on the spot by prior arrangement, or 48 hours from receipt of scans of the complete document package in the case of remote opening.

 

Deposit requirements:

Target minimum is EUR 500K but this can be substantially reduced in some cases, especially where the client is applying for residency in Andorra.
