Hi, I'm an online freelance writer. I write to ameliorate my income. However, most of the freelance writing houses I work for make payments exclusively by PayPal. My challenge is PayPal does not allow people from my geographical location earn by their payment processor, we are only allowed to purchase. Therefore, I need to have a US bank account to verify my US PayPal account to enable me earn from my writing jobs. I'm neither a resident nor a citizen of United States. Is this possible?

Good morning, Sherryle and thank you for considering TD for your banking needs.
As you are a non-US resident at this time, in order to open an account with us, it will be required for you to visit us at a TD Bank Store location, during lobby hours. If you will be visiting U.S. in the near future, check out our Store locator for our hours and locations here: http://bit.ly/TDStores.
When you are ready to visit us at a TD Store location, as a non-US resident you will need to bring two forms of identification with you. One form of ID must be a valid non-US Passport and the second form of valid 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 highly recommended to contact the TD Store you will be visiting to open the account in advance to confirm if any other information will be needed.
Additionally, we invite you to review the many different types of Checking and Savings accounts we offer. To view and compare our Checking accounts, visit http://bit.ly/1aDaRqd or use our Checking selector tool http://bit.ly/1vW1xnU for help selecting a Checking account that is the best fit for you.
