Welcome to TD Helps, Matheus! We'd be happy to review how to open an account with us and thank you for your consideration!
In order to open an account with us, you will need to visit us at a TD Bank Store in your area. For hours and locations nearby, take a look here: https://go.td.com/1nq31dc.
We invite you to take a look at our Checking and Savings accounts. To view and compare our checking accounts, visit: https://go.td.com/1aDaRqd. To view and compare savings accounts, take a look here: https://go.td.com/2otw3xj.
Once you are ready to visit a Store, as a non-US resident you will need to bring two forms of identification with you. One form of ID must be a non-US passport and the second form of ID you may select from the list below:
- Employment ID with Photo and Signature
- State Issued ID or Driver's License with Signature
- Foreign Driver's License with Photo
- US Employment Authorization card with Photo, Signature and Expiration Date
- College ID with Photo
- Alien Registration Card with Photo
- Permanent Resident Card with Photo
We hope this helps, Matheus and if you have any other questions please let us know!

Hi Shanika, I am from Nigeria and am coming over to Canada come March, 2018. I am want to open a bank account. I will be in Ottawa, I just want to know if it possible to open an account without any Canadian ID or SIN, and how to go about it. I am on a visitor visa only. I will have my passport and my drivers license with me as proof of address in Nigeria. Is this sufficient to open an account? Once the account is open can I then make transfers from my bank account in Nigeria to my TD account? Thank you for the help
