My husband and I are moving to D.C in January (from Canada) and would like to set some banking up beforehand. We would like regular banking (chequing and savings) as well as a credit card (each, or one with a secondary user). We will not have a SSNs right away, and can therefore not prove credit history (nor do we have any credit history in the United States). Can we set up banking BEFORE moving to the U.S? Can we use Canadian credit history to apply for a credit card? Help! Thank you!!
