How to open a bank account in CR from the US

You cant, you have to be in Costa Rica to open an account, there is much form filling-out, etc, you have to fund it, they give you your ATM card right away.

Same applies to just about any other country too...

Right, Dana. When I tried to open a U.S. HSBC account over the Internet, I was told by a customer service supervisor that it's impossible without a valid U.S. residential address. And I'm a U.S. citizen with a U.S. mailing address and (at that time) an account at Banco HSBC de Costa Rica.


Life is no longer simple.
