Bank account for foreigners

Opening a local bank account is a requirement that is required on several occasions: to be able to collect our salary, to open a new electricity supply contract, and much more.

The Spanish financial market is very wide and there are many different options according to our requirements. Many banks require compliance with certain specific conditions such as direct debit of payroll or a minimum number of periodic payments (generally 3 per month) such as electricity or water.

Some banks may require a combination of both, while others may be completely free and have no associated conditions. Some banks offer free credit or debit cards, others require a monthly fee.

One of the most frequent problems, however, is being able to open an account before having obtained the NIE, whose waiting times, as we have seen here, are usually quite long and can sometimes compromise our ability to open a local bank account.
