I am a foreigner. I would like to know the requirements of opening a personal account with UOB.

The Bank would require customer to be physically present in Singapore for any account opening as verification and sighting of documents are needed.

The following documents will be required for opening a personal savings/current account:

Foreigners (not studying/working in Singapore)

  • Passport; and
  • Other form of more permanent identification e.g. identification cards or social security passes etc.
  • Proof of residential address (such as the latest telephone/utilities bill or latest bank statement; all documents to be in English).
  • A Letter of Reference from a Bank whereby the customer is currently having an existing banking relationship with the Bank itself; 
  • A Letter from an Introducer (the introducer must be our existing UOB Singapore account holder)

Please note that the provision of the above documents does not automatically indicate that the Bank will accept the account opening for customer. The approval of the account opening is at the Bank’s sole discretion and the Bank reserves the right to reject the account opening without disclosing any reason.
