STEP 4: Local References
The bank will ask you to send references in order to complain with the Patriot Act.
It’s very important to have a local bank reference letter. As to send screenshots of the local bank accounts you have. By doing this the bank is working according the Patriot Act, which demands that they should be making all the reasonable efforts to validate the customer origin.

If you don’t have a local bank account or credit cards, you better get it prior the process for opening the US bank account in HSCB.

Your local address needs to be validated with an utility bill. If this documents don’t have your name on it or if the address is not exact you need to fix that. If it’s a rented place you need to send a signed contract that can certified your address.
