Helpful Links & Additional Information
In the video, I mention some links & contact information:
- A friend of mine recently opened a bank account with BBVA in Campeche. Here are the documents the bank asked to see:
- Residency card
- Utility bill (proof of address)
- US social security # (not card)
- A second US-based photo ID (i.e. driver’s license)
- Even though she didn’t have a second US-based photo ID, she was still able to open the account.
- She started the process late-morning and was told to return at 3 p.m. that same day to pick up her debit card.
- For US residents, I recommend opening a high-yield checking account with Charles Schwab. I’ve used my Schwab card nearly exclusively since moving to Mexico without issue.
- It’s free to open and requires no minimum balance.
- You’re reimbursed for all ATM fees at the end of each month.
