The procedure for opening an Erste Bank account
To open an Erste Bank account is possible for personal purposes as well as for business services. In all cases, a personal visit to the bank is required, as well as completing a questionnaire. This form must be filled out correctly, including information about the applicant. Properly executed documents are also submitted along with the questionnaire. If they come from countries that are signatories to the 1961 Hague Convention, an apostille will suffice, but in other cases, consular legalization is necessary. A specific list of documents submitted for consideration depends on the case’s specifics. But in any case, the following documents are considered.
Individuals provide originals, duly certified copies of identification documents, and proof of address (utility receipts and bank statements). Individuals also provide information on types of activities and sources of income.
Legal entities submit originals and duly certified copies of constituent documents, information on types of activities, sources of income, as well as data on the structure of the group. For legal entities, it is essential to confirm the legality of the business without a connection of income with money laundering and terrorist financing.
Erste Bank Austria reserves the right to request additional data and documents to verify the client’s reliability. Prifinance lawyers are ready to advise you on the requirements and the package of documents in your case.
