Forums > Living in Kunming > opening a bank account

I HAD A RENTAL CONTRACT IN HUNAN, BUT THIS DID NOT IMPACT THE DECISION OF PSB, OR THE BANKS.

i CAN PROVIDE THE SAME HERE IN KM, SO WE WILL SEE.
ATM FEES FOR A EURO BANK CARD ARE NOT SO BAD HERE.

THANKS FOR THE FEEDBACK.

psb can classify me a tourist as long as they like. i will still be living here; resident status or not.
this is a side issue.

the major banks were not making a distinction about visa-class; they are not processing new applications from foreigners.

this was in Hunan. we will see if the same rules apply in yunnan.

cheers..

again, peter, i was simply exploring the possibilities, without really expecting much.
as i told the psb, i don't "think i might like to live here", i do live here.

the main take-away is that 5 of the Big Banks all stated that they are not processing new accounts for foreigners, as of March, Hunan Province.

If Yunnan has the same policy, it only causes me to make 6 day-trips a year to Viet Nam, which is not so bad.
a marriage of convenience in Hunan would mean that I would never see the sunshine again. nasty climate.

@PETER 99
YOUR TEXT IS NOT NONSENSE; ALL IDEAS ARE WELCOME.

I WAS EXPLORING THE POSSIBILITY OF UPGRADING TO RESIDENT STATUS, SINCE I AM A RESIDENT. THE PSB OFFICER WAS QUITE FRIENDLY AND PERSONAL. I MET HER FAMILY, ETC.
THE BANK ACCOUNT WAS ONLY MENTIONED IN PASSING, AND SHE VOLUNTEERED THE CONTACTS AT THE BANKS.
THE BANKS DIDN'T SPECIFY VISA TYPES, ONLY THAT THEY ARE NOT PROCESSING NEW ACCOUNTS FOR FOREIGNERS, ONLY STUDENTS.

I WILL ATTEMPT THE SAME PROCEDURE HERE, BUT, FOR NOW, DUE TO THE LACK OF BUS-MAP INFORMATION, AM A SORT OF HOSTAGE IN ANCIENT TOWN.

MY EURO BANK CARDS ARE VALID FOR 3 MORE YEARS, BUT MUCH PREFERABLE TO BE LOCAL, NO?

THANKS FOR THE FEEDBACK. CHEERS.

The new policy in Hunan occurred within the past few months.
While attempting to upgrade my visa to resident status, the PSB official gave me a reference to a few banks.
The banks, in turn, had to submit my application back to PSB for approval..

That is one glitch: PSB classes me a visitor, when they know that I live here, and will continue to do so.

Thanks for your ideas.
