Account opening for individual clients

An account can be opened with RCB Bank Ltd either individually or jointly by several account owners (joint accounts).

To open an account, an individual client should provide the Bank with the following documents:

  • A passport or National Identity Card (original): to be copied and certified by an employee of the Bank. In exceptional cases, the Bank will accept a copy of a passport, certified by a notary and apostilled.
  • An original document confirming the applicant's permanent residential address. The Bank accepts the following recent (up to six months old) documents: utility bills, a telephone/internet local line bill, a local authority tax bill, house insurance and a bank statement only. For citizens of Russia or the Ukraine, the registered address which appears on the passport would be accepted as evidence of address provided that this address is the permanent residential address.
  • An Account Application Form, a Personal Questionnaire, the letter of notification on Defence Tax, FATCA, CRS Self Certification Form and Signature Specimen Card. All signatures must be certified by a Certifying Officer/Notary Public unless signed in the presence of one of the Bank's employees.

The Bank will request a face-to-face meeting with an individual who has applied to open an account and who is authorized to operate a bank account. The Bank reserves the right to request any other documentation / information it considers necessary in order to fulfill its commitment to perform a complete “Know Your Client” check on its clients. More information can be obtained at the Bank's branches or by phone
