how can a person who is visiting the states from Germany for one year set up a checking account for herself? What type of documentation would she need to bring to the bank to set up the account?

This is a great question, Robin, and we appreciate you coming to TD Helps for your answers today!
We are happy to announce that, at this time, a minor will have the ability to sign up for an account as long as an adult is willing to sign onto the account with them!
To set up a new account, they will need to visit their local TD Bank Store during lobby hours with the adult they wish to add to their account, to speak with a Customer Service Representative. To take a look at Store locations and their hours, please visit http://go.td.com/1f9DSJR. If they are not a minor, they will not need an adult to be added to the account with them.
We offer many different types of accounts to fit everyone's needs. If they are looking to open a Checking account, they're welcome to use the link here: https://go.td.com/1aDaRqd to review the Checking products we currently have to offer. We also offer Savings accounts, which can be found here: https://go.td.com/1pJT9I9. If they're having trouble deciding which account may best fit their needs, they're welcome to use our Selector Tool here: https://go.td.com/2sx4N2E, which can help by making a personalized recommendation.
Once they're ready to visit a TD Store, as non-US residents, they will need to bring two forms of identification. One form of ID must be a valid non-US Passport, and the second form of valid ID they 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'd also like to recommend that they contact the TD Store location they plan on visiting to confirm if any other information or documentation will be required at the time of the account opening.
We sincerely hope this clears up any confusion, Robin. Enjoy the rest of your day!
