My cousin was born in the U.S., and has U.S. citizenship, but lives in China. Can I open an account for him?

We appreciate you reaching out to us on TD Helps, Caleb. We'll be happy to help your cousin get an account!
Please be aware that you will not be able to open an account on another person's behalf. However, we do have many options for US Citizens living abroad.
First, if he is planning a trip to the United States in the near future, he may certainly stop by any of our Store locations in person with a valid photo I.D. (Driver's License, Passport, Military I.D. etc.) and Social Security number. To find out TD store locations near you, please visit, http://bit.ly/TDStores.
He may also speak with one of our 24/7 Banking Specialists via telephone. Please note that during the new account opening process, we will need to verify his identity. And, depending on how long he has been outside the US, his most recent credit history may be taken into consideration for this purpose.
When calling from outside US, please dial direct 1-856-751-9000 or collect with operator assistance from a land line phone by asking the operator to dial 1-215-569-0518 if he is able to gain access to a land line.
Thanks for choosing TD Bank, Caleb. Let us know if you have any further questions!
