I don’t have one but you’ll obviously need an address and proof of address in the EU for it.

I doubt an Aramex proof of address is enough to open a bank account.

Last time I opened an EU bank account, I was asked for an address present on a bank statement or a phone bill.
They just need an address to mail your card to you as stated in the justonelap post...

Yup my girlfriend and I have one, using our German passports, and having the cards sent to my address in Germany.

10 minutes, really efficient.

Thank you, everyone, for the feedback. I also registered for an account. Let's see if the card gets delivered.

Hi,

I would like to know if any of you here have managed to open a N26 Euro Bank Account?

There was a reader on Simon Brown's Just One Lap who apparently was able to open a N26 bank account even though he is residing in South Africa.

Here is a link to the article:

Here is a link to N26 Bank:

Thanks.
Sure if you're willing to have the risk of the account being closed at any time hanging over your head.

N26 requires being resident in the EU. Personally I would not want to put money in a bank account opened with falsified info but to each their own.

Currently, you can sign up for a N26 account if you are a resident of one of the following countries:

Germany
Austria
Ireland
France
Spain
Italy
Netherlands
Belgium
Portugal
Finland
Lithuania
Latvia
Luxemburg
Slovenia
Estonia
Greece
Slovakia

I find it insane that they don't ask for a proof of residence, I actually wonder if it is even compliant.

I have 2 EU online accounts in other online banks and they all ask ID + proof of residence before opening it.

That's why the person, from there, moved the funds to a trading account. People don't bother reading nowadays smh.

Does that trading account allow to withdraw the funds in a third account?

Mines (on Interactive Brokers and on my french bank) only allow me to withdraw to EU accounts which I’ve used deposit money with.

Withdrawal problems aside, pointing out that you’re submitting false details is a valid point. Awesome comment about reading though!
Only "fake" details I submitted is the address and its my address anyway since I paid for for it.

The N26 is not available. If Mercantile Bank is still operating in SA then you can open a Portuguese account with them. My bank here in PT is with them.
