some colleagues that were able to open non resident accounts in the US for regular checking/savings and use of debit card/wire transfer. I'd like to know what the process is for opening an account without being a US citizen/resident.

Thank you for your interest in banking with TD, Luciano. We'd be glad to help.
In order to open either a business or personal account with us, you will need to visit us at a TD Bank Store. To take a look at TD locations and their hours, please take a look here: http://bit.ly/TDStores.
We offer many different types of personal checking and savings accounts. To view and compare our checking accounts, visit http://bit.ly/1aDaRqd or check out our Checking Selector Tool http://bit.ly/1vW1xnU for help with selecting a checking account that is the best fit for you. To view and compare savings account products, click on http://bit.ly/1pJT9I9 , or if you prefer, we also have a Savings Selector Tool http://bit.ly/1vW1DvM which can help you choose the best savings account for your needs.
If you are interested in opening a business account, please know that your business will need to be registered in the U.S. with a valid Tax Identification Number.
We suggest reviewing the types of business accounts that TD Bank has to offer as well. If you take a look here, http://bit.ly/1lWgAhe, the link shows the types of business checking accounts that we offer. Our web page can even make a selection based on your needs with the Business Checking Selector tool: http://bit.ly/1lGeYmw. If you have any questions while reviewing these options, a Business Banking Specialist would be happy to assist you over the telephone. You can reach them by dialing 1-855-278-8988.
Once you're ready to visit a TD Store, there are some things that you will need to bring with you. 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
If your business account is going to have multiple signers, be sure to bring them with you for the account opening process. Those who are going to be signers on the account need to bring the following documents: a valid photo I.D. (Driver's License, Passport, Military I.D. etc.) and Social Security number. For a non-resident alien opening a business account, you will need two valid forms of ID as mentioned above and a W-8Ben must be completed during the account opening process. Be sure to bring the Tax Identification Number for your business.
We also recommend reaching out to the TD Store you plan on visiting to determine if any additional documents are required.
We hope to see you at TD Store soon, Luciano. Take care.
