Thanks for your interest in an account with TD, Gerald. We'd be glad to help.
Please know that in order to maintain an account as an individual you need to be 18 years or older. You may open a joint checking account with an adult such as a parent or guardian by visiting a TD Store during lobby hours. To take a look at TD Stores you'd like to visit please click here: http://bit.ly/TDStores.
Keep in mind that you will need a valid form of photo I.D. As a non-U.S. 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
It is very important to contact the Store you plan to visit to open the account to confirm if any other information or documentation will be required at the time of the account opening.
Prior to your trip, we recommend taking a look at the accounts we have to offer. For checking account information please take a look here: http://bit.ly/1dbAcWh and for more information on savings account you may click: http://bit.ly/1o4wfc4.
We hope this information helps, Gerald and have a good day.

Yes, but I saw that I can open a Student Checking Account being under minor. And I will not travel, I am from Venezuela and I would like to open a account for online use only, I need drive international transfer. If I realice a transfer from Venezuela to my future TDBank account. Does the bank makes foreign exchange bolivars to dollars ?. Is that my situation is the next: I must transfer money to persons of U.S.A. in dollars. So, I am here hahah. How can I realice the online form if the online form doesn't accept Foreign people? Thank you. I appreciate your advice.

Welcome back, Gerald.
As we mentioned above, in order to open an account with TD as a non-U.S. as a minor you would need to visit a TD Store with an adult such as a parent or guardian. Furthermore, in order to open a TD Student account, you would need to be an active student in the U.S. We apologize if this causes any inconvenience.
In regards to transfers, we recommend speaking with your Representative at a TD Store during your account opening for further detail.
Thanks for visiting us again, Gerald. Have a good day.

And If my mom opens a normal checking account, She could open the account online? For us it is impossible to go to USA. There must be a way to open the account of my mother ( 53 years old ) online for our transactions.

Welcome back to TD Helps, Gerald! We'll be sure to clarify your question regarding our account opening process.
Please note that any Non US citizen that wishes to open an account with us must visit a TD Bank during lobby hours. Also, please refer to the previous responses for information on how your mother can open an account with us.
We're sorry if this is an inconvenience and we hope this answers your question fully. Take care and have a wonderful afternoon, Gerald!
