Start your journey
By selecting your current location and where you would like to open an overseas account we will be able to confirm the best way for you to proceed.
Open your overseas account
Eligibility criteria will differ depending on where you open an account - we'll give you this information when you begin the application. We'll also ask you to verify your identity with the necessary documentation.
Access your account
Once you've opened your account, you'll be able to access it online, via the HSBC mobile banking app, or through phone banking. The account activation process varies slightly by country or region. We'll provide you with step-by-step instructions so you can start banking as quickly as possible.
