How to open a bank account in Spain?
This service is offered to students from abroad who enroll in a program at IE and would like to open a bank account before their arrival (minimum 30 days in advance) so they have direct access to their funds as soon as they land in Madrid. Having access to these funds may facilitate finding an apartment, registering at the gym, purchasing your telephone, etc.
The Financial Aid Office can support you in opening of a bank account from Banco Sabadell 30 days before your arrival as long as you have already paid for your place reservation. See the account terms and conditions here.
You just need to send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org including:
• Form click here to download it
• Enrollment contract
• Copy of your passport
We will send your documents to the bank and they will contact you by email once your account is ready.
