New customers

If you are a new customer to HSBC (i.e. no existing relationship world wide) and moving to the UK you would need to apply in branch or on the telephone when you arrive in the UK. There is a list of current accounts that you can apply for subject to you meeting the UK current account opening requirements. In some circumstances you would need to provide valid proof of residency, VISA and identification documents acceptable to HSBC UK.
